Sweet and savoury barbecued pork jerky is a must-have during Lunar New Year. While this snack is originally from Fujian, many Singaporean and Malaysian claim it as a favourite. It is commonly made with minced or sliced pork, marinated with soy sauce and sugar. Some layer it with a touch of aromatics, herbs or even fruits like pineapple to lend an extra layer of flavour. It is smoked then barbecued over charcoal fire to get the rich bbq flavour.

This is arguably Singapore’s most successful brand of Bak Kwa or honeyed pork jerky. They have numerous outlets, and the brand has grown over the years with extra items and varieties, like individually shrink-wrapped packs (great for tourists) and a sinful bacon version. The jerky is roasty enough and if you get them off the charcoal wood grill, they are a delight to tear into. The balance of sweet, salty and savoury with a gentle bite to the texture is alluring. This is also one of the most popular food gift packs travellers buy when leaving the country.
