“Your favorite Tza-Char dish in the form of a chocolate bar” – the makers of Fossa say. And then of course you have to know what they mean by that. And then again thanks to wikipedia you can quickly learn a little more, although you can also travel to Singapore for it, you will soon know what they mean.
Tza-Char is a Hokkien term used in Singapore to describe a Chinese stall that provides a wide selection of common and affordable dishes which approximate home-cooked meals. Most Tze Char stalls are commonly found in hawker centers and kopitiams located in the heartlands of Singapore.
The wallet-friendly prices coupled with a big serving portion makes it a favorite choice for gatherings or meet-ups between family and friends among the Chinese population. Not only is the price point a source of popularity, the offerings or home-cooked style food makes it a popular choice among Singaporean too.
