Hakka Lui Cha @ Jalan Intan

On the 7th days of Chinese New Year, Chinese Hakka clan will celebrate the day by serving Lui Chai to family. While I am now from Hakka clan my mom don't cook Lui Cha on that day.  So me and my friend went to a very famous lui cha stall which situated at a corner terrace house at Jalan Intan.  This stall is featured in one of the food show by Axian.  Indeed it was really nice.  I have went back more and more of that.  This Lui Cha is so addictive. 

This consist of Rice, Cangkuk Manis, Long Bean, Leek, preserved carrots and peanuts.  The ingredient might be diff from others.

Hi all. I am a fan of lei cha. Just wanna remind that this dish can be equally harmful to our body. This is because the cook usually enhances the taste with lots of salt or other flavour enhancer eg msg. Same goes for organic food. One will know when one feels thirsty after consuming these food. Best prepared by a cook we know that don't use such flavour enhancers. Sometimes, normal food like a bowl of noodles or economy rice is healthier cos the meat in it has sodium and hence, the cook uses less salt or msg.

@Steven Leong,

I guess there is not much of MSG use. As i am very sensitive to MSG. I will drink like a hippo when there is a lot of MSG. Most of the Herbs is from their garden as i saw them plant a lot of the herbs around their house.
