The Essence of Abalone
Abalone, a symbol of wealth in Chinese culture, it’s shape represents that of a gold ingot which was commonly used back in the early years. This is why we shape our kueh to look like Abalone because we want our customers to remember old-standing traditions.
Yam Cake’s Versatility
We’ve tried many types of ingredients to make this dish but we believe Yam is the best ingredient to highlight as the main icon of the dish. Yam cake, a popular dish in Asian cuisines, is traditionally made with grated yam, rice flour, and various seasonings.
This starchy delight is steamed to perfection, resulting in a smooth, slightly chewy texture. Its neutral flavor profile allows it to serve as an excellent canvas for a variety of ingredients, making it a versatile choice for culinary experimentation.
A mix of soft, chewy, and savory bite to excite your taste buds!
One of the highlights of Abalone Yam Cake is the delightful contrast in textures. The yam cake’s soft and slightly chewy consistency is juxtaposed against other spices added such as dried shrimp and pumpkin to enhance the flavors.
Abalone Yam Cake also serves as a platform for culinary creativity. Chefs often experiment with additional ingredients, such as shiitake mushrooms, scallions, and sesame oil, to further enhance the dish’s complexity. The presentation is also an important aspect, with some chefs opting for intricate molds or artistic arrangements that elevate the visual appeal of the dish.
