Sticky Rice Pudding

Whata��s so special about Wang Ta Rice Pudding is the big whole piece of a preserved oyster on top of it, also a slice of savory pork stew that smells so amazing. We highly recommend an additional tasty and firm brown stewed egg, drizzle it with the melt- in-your- mouth marinade and their special rice chili sauce or chili paste. You absolutely will keep refilling your bowl because you just cana��t have enough of it.

Stuffed Deep-fried Tofu

Finely dice water chestnuts, evenly mix them with ground pork, then stuff the mixture into hollowed deep-fried tofu triangles, steam them until cooked through. They are flavorful and light, not heavy or oily. Ita��s such a wonderful taste!

Dried noodle

To make the dressing for the noodle, they use 4 special sauces: shallot meat sauce, thick soy sauce, fired shallots and rice chili pepper-grandpaa��s secret recipe. As soon as the noodle is brought to your table, quickly mix everything evenly so you can taste the original freshness and sweetness of the noodle.

Sparerib Soup with Orange Day-lily

Carefully selected large orange day-lily flowers cooked with tender spareribs make the soup soothing and tasty.

Sparerib Soup with Bitter Melon

The carefully selected bitter melons have no bitterness in them, also make the spareribs very flavorful, and the soup so savory.
