The taste of this mock meat floss is mild, not too saltish and tastes abit creamy? It melts in your mouth. I tried it with noodles today & it tasted well.
Its ingredients as found on its label include: Pumpkin, TSP, Starch, Vegetable Oil, Seaweed, Vegetarian Seasoning.
Hence, you can also find slices of seaweed and pumpkin seeds in it.
It is an Malaysian product (found "Halal" logo on its packaging) by Yi Dah Xing Food Factory (M) Sdn. Bhd., imported by Friendly Vegetarian Food Supplier at Blk421, Ang Mo Kio Ave. 10, #01-1165.
I got it from the Vegetarian stall at S'pore Buddhist Lodge's trolley cart that sells buns. At $5, for a 230g in air-tight packaging, I think it's worth to try...
(The Trolley cart is a new concept that they have for their stalls which I feel sorry for the stall vendors who have to endure the sun & rain in the open space. Personally, I consider trolley carts to be more suitable in sheltered environment especially since Spore is a country that experiences hot & rainy weather :P)

Generally, I do not really like mock meat but the 2 frozen mock meat products that I am going to introduce are quite nice in my opinion & changed my views about mock meat.
The Vegetarian Cold Smoky Meat is a Taiwanese product by Chaste Je Way Industrial Co., Ltd with essential ingredients indicated on its packaging: soybean protein fiber, glucomannian, lactalbumin, starch, sugar, salt, soybean oil, natural spices.
Just have to slice them into thin pieces & use them to stir-fry with vegetables or cook them with noodles. It is replicating as the fatty pork meat and the white jelly portion tastes like fats of meat.
Princess Gold Pieces is a Malaysia product from Tian Sing Cold Storage. Details of ingredients are not specified but it claimed all ingredients to be from plant sources.
It can also be stir-fried with vegetables and it tasted like tender pork pieces. I would think it tasted better than the real pork pieces which needs a lot of preparation to make it as tender. My favourite dish would be to use it to cook with sesame oil, dark soy sauce and ginger slices.
Another mock meat product that I like is the mock meat found in Classic Lao Di Fang's Spicy noodles . However, the frozen product found & tried does not taste as good so I believe some additional preparation work may have been done to make it taste good.
Hope that more nutritious and yet tasty products in place of meat could be introduced in future...

- get a bowl of hot plain soft bean curb (without syrup) from any Soy Drink stall (try to get from one that is famous for its smoothness)
- Belachan chilli (with chilli oil )
- Vegetarian Dried shrimp (optional, can be obtained from same source as Belachan chilli)
- light soy sauce
- Sesame oil
1) Simply mix a tablespoon of Belachan chilli (with chilli oil) with some light soy sauce (1 teaspoon or to taste) & 2 drops of sesame oil in a saucer.
2) Scoop desired quantity of bean curb.
3) Pour desired amount of mixed sauce on top of bean curb & softly mix evenly.
4) Add Vegetarian Dried shrimp on top (optional).
There it is, my own version of simplified Spicy bean curb. :-) May not look as nice and taste as good as the Original one but good enough for time being...
Let me know if you find any nice smooth bean curb stalls...

With this instant product which you can find easily at supermarkets, you could prepare a serving for six at <$1.50 (almond dessert alone) & in minutes.
1) Just pour the packet ingredients into boiling water (2 cups or 500g or if you do not like it to be too sweet, 2.5-3 cups to your liking), continue to boil & stir constantly until Dessert dissolve.
2) Pour into mould/big bowl & allow to cool. Dessert will set in 30min or 15min with refrigeration.
Even simpler than cooking instant noodles if you just eat it plain without fruits. No Hassle dessert that suits a lazy person like me.
Its ingredients: Sugar, Non-fat dry milk, Glucose, Natural vegetable gum, Almond.
This brand has other flavours like Mango & Durian but I like its Almond flavour Best. Personally, I prefer to use fresh fruits for Mango & Durian pudding:P.

Easily available in most Chinese Medical shops, it usually comes in package of six & costs less than a $1 per bottle, a treasure that I always carry along when I travel nowadays.:-)
