Hock Wong Bak Kwa
Produced in Singapore, Hock Wong bak kwa uses only quality pork and follows a careful roasting process to achieve an inviting char, which results in an addictive snack with a perfect balance of sweet and savoury. Available in five delightfully illustrated boxes featuring 3D caricatures of mythological Chinese Gods of Luck and words of good fortune, each bak kwa is individually wrapped and vacuum sealed as soon as the meat cools off from the grill to ensure that the moisture and flavours stay locked in.
The Minced Pork and Pork Belly Bak Kwa gift sets are available for purchase online.
