The dish has been described by Catherine Ling of CNN as one of the "10 grossest foods in Singapore". According to lore, the dish can help women to produce more offspring. It is considered a "rare dish" in the country; it is sometimes erroneously referred to as pig intestines or pig uterus. Consuming the dish is reportedly good for one's skin, according to one source.

Preparation and description[edit]

Pig fallopian tubes is made by stir-frying the fallopian tubes of a pig, before chopping them up. Kung pao sauce is added to the dish and it is served with some vegetables[1] and sambal chilli.[2] On its own, the fallopian tubes are tasteless; the sauce accounts for the dish's flavour.[2] The dish is described by Catherine Ling of CNN as "almost crunchy and springy [in texture] but yielding to the bite".[1]
