This isn't your typical braised pork belly with lots soy and rock sugar. It's inspired by ingredients spanning 3 countries to bring you something light and fresh!
The flavours are built up from Lychee (Cantonese), Perilla leaves (Korean), and umeboshi (Japanese). Sweet and a hint of tartness to balance the fatty pork belly. All three countries are brought together with the glutenous rice wine which is present across all three cultures, adding another layer of sweetness and harmony.
Best served with Papa Yau's Fried Rice 🍚
