Teochew Food Culture
Teochew (also known as Chaozhou) is a region in south-eastern China inside the province of Canton (Guangdong). It has a very rich food culture dating back hundreds if not thousands of years.
Teochew cuisine is known for its balanced seasoning that aims to bring out the original flavor of the ingredients. For this reason, Teochew people put great importance in the quality and freshness of the ingredients.
Teochew Foodie's goal is to share this food culture to the Quebec market by preparing delicious authentic recipes and making them accessible and affordable. This is achieved by sourcing from local ingredients as much as possible and offering the food frozen with multiple pick-up points, making it easy and convenient for all chinese food lovers of the region.
Teochew Foodie is a family owned business launched in early 2020. The idea came to us after Ying and Qiusheng (parents) had started selling frozen wontons to friends and family as a hobby following their recent immigration to Canada.
After a very warm reception, we decided to increase our target audience and see if Montrealers in general were interested in handmade Teochew food. We started selling to some social media followers and next thing we knew, we were opening our first Teochew Foodie store in St-Henri.
2 years later, we have a storefront on St-Denis and produce many different kinds of Teochew specialties (Rice Noodle Rolls, Braised Meats, Salads and more!). Our products are sold in 3 different partner establishments and some restaurants have started sourcing their wontons from us.
We are extremly grateful to the local community and everyone who has helped us on the way. In return, we intend to continue producing delicious healthy food that you can easily prepare in the comfort of your own home.
