In addition to those that you mention, I love peanuts and preserved vegetables (usually mustard greens).

Definitely love pork floss. Pickles are great, especially love spicy daikon and bamboo. Peanuts in soy sauce. Salted duck egg, more with plain porridge. Some people like to crack a raw egg on top of hot porridge and stir it in.

I like peanuts and cilantro, as well as a soft-boiled egg. The yolk mixes in and it gets all creamy and delicious.
