Near the end of day two in Hong Kong we collectively noticed there is an awful lot of pork in our meals. Pork dumplings at breakfast, sweet fried pork dumplings for dessert, minced pork Shanghai dishes and on and on and on. I thought about it for a moment and realized that I had eaten some form of pork at every single meal since I arrived.
Immediately I took it on as a challenge to see if I could eat pork at each meal for my entire ten day stay. I’m about half way there and I’m optimistic I’ll succeed in my mission.
Apparently there is historical rational for this phenomenon. Basically every other kind of meat has gone through some kind of phase of health related disaster at one time or another. Currently you can’t get fresh duck due to some kind of outbreak for instance.
