Hakka cuisine is a style of cooking found in parts of Taiwan among other oversees Hakka communities, such as Vietnam, Cambodia, Thailand, Singapore, Malaysia and more. The Hakka cooking style is a form of Chinese cuisine, one that places a big focus on the texture of food. Similar to other regional types of Chinese cuisine, Hakka food is cooked depending on what is available in the market.
Described as ‘outwardly simple, but tasty’, the skill of this style of cuisine lies in its ability to thoroughly cook meat while not hardening it in order to bring out the full flavour of the meat. Pragmatic and simple, the Hakka cuisine traditionally garnished with very little flavouring and instead relying on the full flavour of the meat, seafood or vegetables to bring the dish to life.
