Soy caramel, mandarin orange, pickled pineapple, shaved coconut, macadamia nuts. $10 Mission Chinese Food, San Francisco CA
Mmm, this pork belly was SO tasty! I just wish there was more of it, hehe. The thick pieces were pretty fatty but the soy caramel sauce was absolutely addictive. I also loved the fun tropical additions.
The bright red, yellow and green colors make this dish visually stunning. Unfortunately, the overcooked fish was not appealing – the barramundi became dense and tough. The dish tasted light and fresh, but the flavors didn’t pop as much as the colors.
