As a Foo Chow/Hock Chew, I have many fond memories of the red rice wine mee suah. I remember stealing sips of the soup prepared for my mum, during her confinement period. I remember liking only my mother and paternal grandmother’s red rice wine because they have ‘sweeter’ hands (my maternal grandmother’s red rice wine was sourish). And I remember eating it every Chinese New Year in Sitiawan.
Yes, I’m a true blue Foo Chow/Hock Chew, and proud of it! That’s why I’ve decided to introduce a few of my favourite Foo Chow dishes in this video blog. Enjoy!
