I don’t know why I always present fatty foods, maybe they are the kinds of food that I really like. This Sweetened pork I always had with rice mixed with shrimp paste. Sliced sour mango, coriander, red chili peppers, and red onion will also go along with it very well. Sometimes, I just had it with rice and soy sauce. However, I can’t stand eating it everyday as it is too sweet.

Next time I will introduce you to salted pork.
