I don't like most meat in China. It's often tough. Our meat is aged and has more flavour and is more tender. We are bigger eaters, nothing like a nice thick BBQ steak or roast. 

  I can eat pork sometimes and other times I don't like it, There are exception, spareribs. I like BBQ pork, but there is such a fine line between being well done and over done, then the meat is dry.

Any bacon or ham I've had in China doesn't taste right to me.

Bacon, I love bacon. That's where the love of pig meat stops with me.

But I must agree with above, the bacon here certainly isn't the same as what I am used to from back home.

Pork being the meat of choice took some getting use to I must say.

Well done on combining a whole bunch of nations and cultures with one word by the way. Bravo!

BBQ'd pulled pork sandwiches are my personal favorite.  But, I have only found a couple of places that make passable ones in China.  

 

When I was back in the US, I would make my own pulled pork and BBQ sauce.  It took about 12 hours to make, but man was it good.  The key is a good rub, the right wood for smoking and a BBQ sauce that compliments the rub.  Damn, I miss my BBQ.

I haven't eaten pork or beef since I was a teenager.

Unlike most people who don't eat pork (Muslim/Jewish diet etc.) I stopped for ideological reasons and even though I don't think the same way anymore it makes me sick now if I eat some by accident.

Pork is part of a lot of dishes in my country, as is chicken and cow. Yes we do have a lot of usage for the pork. There around 90% of the all pork is used to produce food, from blood sausages, to the normal meat. But i have to say i can leave without it. But i like to have variety in my meals so, as we usually say, "what doesn't kill you, makes you stronger" Smile

if you are referring to your paki bf, he is not a westerner. people are different and have varied eating habits. our govts don't micro manage our habits. some people will eat pork some people will not. it could be becoz of personal tastes or religious rules.

In our home countries we have variety,so many will not eat pork or any one thing for lunch dinner every day.

why is it so difficult for chinese to understand the concept of "individual taste"

Roast pork sandwich witih apple sauce!!!!

 

Pig on the Spit!

 

I did have a liking for WuHuaRou.. but I've gotten over it now - too fatty!

 

I've been loving the pork for years now... so I fit right at home here

 

I wish the locals would learn to make a good kebab (as Phil said) - pita bread (or good substitute), lamb/beef/pork/chicken, lettuce, tomato, onion, garlic sauce!

Pork belly is great. Of course eating too much is not good for you because of the thick layer of fat but the slow cooked BBQ style of sweet pork belly is sensational.  I also very much enjoy some of the pork intestine dishes, stir fired with chili especially Sichuan style and pork trotters or even better hocks.  Don't knock it if you haven't tried it.

Yes I do, and to be honest, I feel guilty about it. Pigs are cute and smart, but darn it! I wish they did not taste so good!

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
