There are 3 shrimp paste types: thick, paste and liquid which are based on the rate of salt and the sun exposure. When eating, we should add more lemon, chili to push up its smell.

Besides main foods, fried tofu, shrimp paste, noodles, people could add more some other foods such as boiled shoulder pork, pork roll, fried pork’s guts…
