    you can also use tofu wraps (called tau-pe). these can be bought from soy stores in binondo, banawe or greenhills. it’s actually the original wrapping meant for ngohiong 😀

      thanks for the suggestion. Sometimes tofu wraps are not that readily available

    I miss ngohiong! That was part of my regular diet as a college student there in Cebu – it was cheap and delicious! I would love to make this but I don’t have access to ngohiong powder. What is a good substitute for that?

      you can skip the 5 spice powder. Remember this is for 1 kilo batch. Freeze the rest for future meals.

    Ngo Hiong and 5-Spice Powder are the same. Ngo Hiong / Go Hiong (Hokkien) or Wu Xiang (Mandarin) literally mean “five fragrance / spice”.

      if Ngohiong powder and five spice power are the same, does it mean that i can use 4 tbsp of five spice powder and no ngohiong powder instead?

    Now I know the ingredients of Ngohiong. I thought it’s made of pure ubod and singkamas. Now I know that ground pork and shrimps are also included.

    It’s in San Carlos University Ongkera Extension, at Chinese Nghohiong House, where I often go to eat the original Ngohiong. :-) Cheers!

    Yes, Elsa. You can use five spice powder as a substitute for ngohiong powder. If you check this image, you can see that they are the same thing :)

    what’s the difference between ngohiong powder and 5-spice powder? in ur recipe,u have both. but in ur intro,u said u can get a mccormick brand for ngohiong powder(mccormick 5-spice powder)
    I wanted to make ngohiong but i want to make sure if i could use just the mccormick since i live in the states and it’s difficult to get all the ingredients.
    thanks a lot!

    Hi, shrimp is not vegetarian so you may want to correct the part that says: 1/2 kilo ground pork or you may want to subsitute with shrimps if you are vegetarian. Real vegetarians don’t eat shrimp or fish.

    Good recipe. I always love ngohiong but in Cebu, I really do not have to cook it. I just go to places like Doming’s or Carlos and have an enjoyable lunch. 😉 http://kalamicebu.blogspot.com/2015/01/special-lunch-at-carlos-special-ngohiong.html
