In Shanghai, Ningo nian gao is king. Instead of glutinous rice, their version is made from high-quality, short-grain japonica rice. It’s served either savory in a soup or as a dish with a mixture of toppings; or as a sweet treat, steamed or pan-fried, usually topped with osmanthus flowers. Delight in nian gao for dessert at Wai Po Jia and enjoy the pleasant taste and chewy texture that locals love!
