Handmade Popiah Skin. Every piece is handmade, fresh with love! Nothing beats the chewy texture that acts as the base for all other ingredients - holding it tightly as one. Don't be fooled - it may look thin (<0.5 mm) but it's strong enough to contain all that delicious goodness in your popiah! On top of that, it's low in carbs - a perfect option for those counting calories!
Cooked Turnips & Carrots. Don't be deceived by its simplicity - the juicy slow-cooked turnips and carrots give you a burst of flavor in every bite! Ask the older generations - they'd agree that the preparation of cooked turnips is the most tedious process of all - but we did it from scratch - right from the peeling, washing, and shredding of raw turnips! Despite this being the trickiest ingredient to master in a popiah, we've managed to successfully engineer this core ingredient to be vegetarian-friendly, so dig in!
Minced Garlic. Freshly minced garlic that blends perfectly with the sambal chilli and sweet sauce to give each roll of a kick in taste!
Sambal Chilli. Cooking our own Sambal Chilli also means that we know the taste buds of our customers – from the mild chilli lovers to super adventurous ones who love “extra spicy” Popiah! Yes, we’re always ready to let them have it their way.
Sweet Sauce. Often the most neglected ingredient in a Popiah (retailers usually buy it off the shelves due to its tedious preparation process), we made the impossible possible by manufacturing our very own Sweet Sauce with an optimal degree of sweetness. Unlike other Sweet Sauce that typically consists of “hay gor – fermented prawn paste”, ours are made to be Vegetarian-friendly!
Grated Peanuts. Cooking our own Sambal Chilli also means that we know the taste buds of our customers – from the mild chilli lovers to super adventurous ones who love “extra spicy” Popiah! Yes, we’re always ready to let them have it their way.

Eggs. Fresh eggs are fried and minced up. Simply add a dash to elevate the taste.
Shredded Cucumber. Apart from our Crispy Bits, the fresh Shredded Cucumber contributes greatly to the overall balance and crunchiness in taste.
Coriander. Fresh coriander leaves to complement the overall taste with refreshing tinge. Fret not, we assure it’s not too overpowering and subtle in taste.
Suitable for vegetarian if egg, garlic, coriander and chilli (contains dried shrimp) is not added.
