“The dish I have picked is one that I love when I go to zi char places for dinner. I would always order salted egg sotong or pork ribs. For this recipe, I’ve given it a contemporary bistro touch, refining the dish with a salted egg yolk aioli with mayonnaise. It’s perfect finger food for when friends come over.”
