Roasted Pork (燒肉)

For 60 dollars, you get a catty of roasted pork, and a chicken. It really is a very good deal. No wonder there are so many people pushing to buy, or just gawking.

My favourite is roasted ribs (燒腩肉). The meat is soft, juicy and succulent. There is a bit of fat in the meat, with a crispy crust. Just perfect.

The fact that they have to promote the business this way is an indication it is not an easy business to run. This shop opened only a couple of weeks ago. There had been a roasted meat shop at that location for as long as I can remember, which closed last month all of a sudden. Another one on the same short street, which opened only a couple of years ago, also closed at the same time.

For a long time, there were three major roasted meat shops in the neighbourhood. Now there are at least six.
