Fuzhou Heritage

Sitiawan is known for its strong Foochow heritage. Various traditional Foochow dishes such as Red Rice Wine Vermicelli, “Kompiang” or “Kong Piang” (traditional Foochow buns made with a type of unleavened flatbread stuffed with seasoned pork and baked in a clay oven), as well as “Goroow” (a thick sweet and sour broth cooked with fish maw) are served in Sitiawan restaurants and households alike. Traditional local produce such as red rice wine, and Foochow vermicelli continue to play a vital part in the livelihood of some families from Kampung┬áKoh.
