Ok this is my first time collaborating with my dear friend from Hong Kong, Christina who bought the pork and shared with me her recipe and how to roast this. The roast pork is actually quite easy to do just that try not to have it too often unless you get those Berkshire or Hungarian pork, where the fats are suppose to be good for you. 🙂
Sea Salt (Remember to recycle the salt after removing from the pork! I use it for cooking and cleaning chicken/fish)
Five Spice Powder
All base on agaration (estimate)… depending on how big a slab your pork belly is. White vinegar is not used here to prove that the skin can still be crispy without it. (I don’t have vinegar at home that’s why! ;P) You can use if you wanna follow the books. 😉
Check out the video below and don’t hate me for making you salivate! ;PPP
Dunno why they are using this 鲁 instead of 卤… nevertheless, I reckon they meant the same ‘braised‘ meaning. This place was recommended by my driver when I was working in Shanghai. I tried it the first time when he packed for me during one of the lunches in office. I was like “WHAO!” and this is really a lot better than most of the 鲁肉饭 that I’ve tried. Yes this restaurant can really give the Taiwanese 鲁肉饭s a run for their money! So I visited on one of the evenings. They have other dishes which apparently tasted pretty good as well!
Taste: Really awesome. I’m trying to press my craves down as I’m writing this…
Portion: Below average. The bowl of rice is really little that’s why I ordered the big bowl.
Service: Quite ok. Maybe because of my size… Size does matter in China haha…
Ambience: Average. Wooden chairs and people smoking inside. Can’t wait for them to implement bans for smoking in aircon places like in Guangzhou!
Price: RMB17 for a set of Braise Meat Rice with a slice of braised pork belly and egg. Super cheap!
