Coming off a pretty bad bout of food poisoning last week and then traveling to Hong Kong, Japan, and now landing in the US, it’s safe to say we have a lot of foodie adventures to catch up on! We had some of the best meals this time in Hong Kong and I’m looking forward to getting all the photos edited and uploaded! In the meantime, we wanted to share a picture of the suckling pig we had at the two Michelin-starred Ming Court restaurant inside The Langham Place, Mongkok. This is the best suckling pig we’ve tried – we had it before so I was looking forward to having it here again. It’s different than other suckling pig dishes you will find. It is a very laborious process to make it (three days) as Ming Court takes the extra time to cut off the gooey layer of fat under the skin. The result is a super crispy and rich skin with a layer of charred goodness on the pork itself. It is then served with a small dish of sugar and sauce — heaven!
