Vietnam Style Superior Beef Broth
Megan’s Kitchen’s Vietnam Style Superior Beef Broth is a fragrant and flavourful clear broth boiled and simmered for at least 12 hours daily with tons of Ox Tails, Ox Bones and a variety of aromatic herbs. This soup is served together with a beef platter containing cooked Ox Tongue, Ox Tail, Beef Tripe, Beef Shin together with a different condiments like fresh Basil, Lime Wedges, sliced Onion, Bean Sprouts, crispy shallots and minced peanuts.

Thai Style Red Curry Roasted Duck Dumplings with Lychee
What is a complete Southeast Asian meal without Thai Red Curry? Nothing beats a hint of spiciness that tingles your palate. Lychee not only gives the dumplings a fruity and sweet kick that balances out the heat from Red Curry and oils of the Roasted Duck, the texture also differs from the duck meat which makes this meaty dumpling very interesting.
Malaysian Satay Chicken Dumplings with Peanuts
Chicken Satay can be found everywhere in Malaysia, from hawkers to food courts to five star hotels. Megan’s Kitchen recreated this dish in a dumpling form. Coconut milk is added to the mixture to give the dumplings a sweet nutty salty taste which enhances the flavour of satay, while Peanuts gives it a crunchier texture — Truly a taste of Southeast Asia in one bite.
Thai style Vegetarian OmniPork Strips Dumplings with Beancurd Skin and Tamarind
The sweet and sour Tamarind Sauce and the unique texture of Beancurd Skin makes this dumpling irresistible. While Beancurd Skin may be quite bland on its own, the OmniPork Strips adds a meaty flavour to it, together with the Tamarind, egg and crunchy carrots, a light and refreshing dumpling is created.
Vietnam Style Hand Beaten Shrimp Balls with Vietnam Sausage
Vietnamese Sausage is a regular ingredient in Vietnam cuisine. Our chef diced the Vietnam Sausage and combined it with our hand beaten fresh shrimp paste to make it become our new hotpot meatballs – Vietnam Style Hand Beaten Shrimp Balls with Vietnam Sausage. It is so delicious that we guarantee our guests won’t be able to stop with just one!
Vietnam Style Pork Meatballs with Lemongrass and Straw Mushrooms
This new meatball is a Vietnam cuisine influenced creation. Lemongrass, an essential ingredient in Vietnam cuisine, is not only has a lemon-floral flavour and citrusy aroma that balances complex flavours, it also has a wide range of health benefits, for eg. it is widely used as a natural remedy for digestive issues, neurological problems, and high blood pressure. Our chef added the juice squeezed out from the lemongrass to the pork paste to give an unique flavour to the pork meatballs and to balance out the greasiness of the pork, then added chopped fresh Straw Mushrooms to add more texture. Anyone who loves Vietnam cuisine will love this meatball.
Vegetarian OmniPork Meatballs with Turmeric and Okra
Turmeric and Okra are high in antioxidants and OmniPork is packed with Soy Protein and Yeast, this healthy vegetarian option is great for guests who enjoy something lighter. Dip this meatball in a little bit of soy sauce, or add in some freshly chopped chilli if you enjoy the heat, and you are good to go!
