Suckling pig and then some

Pin It

We have a fellow foodie visiting us, and not surprisingly he made a request for the suckling pig at Seventh Son (家全七福).  After a few waves of visitors recently, it became increasingly difficult for me to round up people to gather for big meals.  Thankfully the others stepped in and we managed to have ourselves a group of eight.

Knowing the practice here of serving all the dim sum items at once, I suggested that we order in multiple rounds the way I usually do... but I was overruled.  So... not surprise that we found ourselves with the table full of steamers and plates.

Honey glazed barbecued pork (蜜汁叉燒) - very tender and melt-in-your-mouth.

Crispy pork belly (脆皮燒腩仔)

Steamed dumplings with minced pork and shrimp (鳳城蒸粉粿 ) - with coriander and crunchy water chestnuts.

Steamed prawn dumplings (七福鮮蝦餃)

Honey glazed barbecued pork ribs (燒一字排骨) - a little heavy-handed on the seasoning.

Deep-fried minced pork dumplings (家鄉咸水角)

Deep-fried wontons (五柳炸雲吞)

Pan-fried radish pudding (香煎蘿蔔糕)

Steamed riceflour rolls with barbecued pork (蜜汁叉燒腸)

Steamed pork dumplings (蟹皇蒸燒賣)

Steamed beef balls (菜膽牛肉球)

Spring rolls with shredded chicken (雞絲炸春卷) - always delicious and fresh from the wok.

Barbecued whole suckling pig (大紅片皮乳豬全體) - the main event.  Apparently The Man in White T-shirt had order the pig to be served two ways...  First it came fully-chopped with the crackling and the meat together.

The other serving was more traditional, with just the wafer-thin crackling.

Followed by the legs, ribs, and all the other fun bits.

Braised pomelo skin with shrimp roe and tofu (豆腐蝦子柚皮) - we needed some 'veg', so the braised pomelo skin came with some choy sum (菜心) as well as Japanese frozen tofu puffs.

Crispy chicken (當紅炸子雞) - as if we didn't have enough food, this was also pre-ordered... And yes, this is one of the best versions in town - as well it should be.  Just look at that skin!

That was a lot of food, and I was happy to meet up with some old and new friends.  I only wish this lunch didn't have to come on the day after I had two big meals...
