Bak Kwa (Dried Pork)

Bak Kwa (Dried Pork)
Pronunciation: bah-kuuah

A Chinese food consisting of salty-sweet slices of dried barbecued glazed pork. Bak Kwa is believed to have originated from a meat preservation and preparation technique which was used in ancient China, particularly in places under Hokkien influence. The minced pork version is prepared by shaping minced meat into slices before grilling them whereas the sliced pork version is prepared by slicing off solid blocks of meat.

An extremely popular snack during the Chinese New Year, Singaporeans are willing to stand and queue for hours just to get their hands on Bak Kwa. All these despite inflated prices during that period of the year.
