Hakka cuisines in Meinong
Meinong is famous for Hakka cuisine and has inherited special cooking methods from the early days. Mouth-watering dishes such as braised pork with dried bamboo shoots, braised bitter gourd with pineapple sauce, and braised pork knuckle all use rock sugar to intensity the color, and fried shallots to bring out the flavor. Their oily, shiny luster, along with the fragrance of charcoal, and rich aroma of soy sauce provide the savory sweet taste that will not be forgotten for sure.more
