Auspicious foods are an important focus during the two-week Chinese New Year festival. A chicken might be served whole to symbolise family togetherness, and sticky rice cake might be offered up to ensure a rich, sweet year ahead. Whilst a whole fish served with the head and tail attached symbolises a good beginning and ending for the coming year – the Chinese word for fish also sounds like ‘abundance’. This particular recipe combines the salty, earthyiness of black bean, with a hit of chilli and a beautifully lightly steamed fish. Great for flavour, balance, and abundance. Kung Hei Fat Choi!
This glossy, salty-sweet roast pork dish is one of the most famous and ubiquitous dishes in Hong Kong.
It can be found on every street corner and each restaurant claims to have the best secret recipe for their Char Siu. The meat is marinated for hours and roasted until tender so when you take your first bite you are treated to the sweetness of the sauce, followed by a slightly charred flavour and finally the joy of the succulent meat. You MUST give it a try!
