Ono Pupu Roast Pork

A visit to Chinatown is made special when passing windows after windows of roast duck, chickens and roast pork hanging in the meat market with long lines out the doors.
A normal trip to the meat market meant you would get home with only half of what you purchased because who can resist those first bites after leaving the market. My dear friend Matt introduced me to this dish.
