What is a must have for you this Chinese new year?


I love the wide variety of frozen meats at Cold Storage/NTUC.


One of the must-have items for steamboat for my family definitely includes the Frozen Pork Collar Shabu Shabu from the Supermarket.



 Don’t be put off by the Frozen Pork Packaging. They actually taste pretty good. I’m afraid I don’t have a photo to share for this but it’s easy to recognize the packaging. Head for the Frozen Pork Sections. The Key words here are “Collar” and “Shabu”. You won’t go wrong with this.





Thinly Sliced Pork Collar (五花肉猪颈肉) doesn’t even need any marinating to taste good! The Pork Collar is an excellent choice for steamboat as the meat remains juicy and tender when cooked.


Why do we call it 五花肉 or ‘Five-Flower’ Pork? This is primarily due to the alternating layers of meat, fat and connective tissue on the pork belly. Hence, this lead us to call it the ‘Five-Flower’ Pork.


I love 五花肉


Besides the NTUC/Cold Storage, you can check out the following stores.

And lastly,

  • Meidi-Ya offers a wide choice of Sukiyaki, Shabu Shabu items which can be used for our steamboat.



Happy Chinese New Year guys! 🙂

That’s the one i’ve gotten from Cold Storage. At NTUC, the brand is Por Kee. 🙂

Surely, it dosen’t looks appealing but when thaw, and you use it for your steamboat! It’s pretty good!

    Pork collar is meat from the neck right? Hmm… why the mention of pork belly or 五花肉 ?

      Yupz. That’s because of the label of the Frozen Pork that i’ve gotten from the supermarkets.

      It’s labelled as “Frozen Collar Shabu Shabu (五花肉)” Hence, the mention of the rest of them!

      Just like what i told my friend, Pork Collar or belly or 五花肉, i love them all! 🙂
