Stewed Pork Belly, Su Zhou Style

My old mentor is in town.  He treated me and the wife to dinner.

Clear Bamboo Pith Soup with Fresh Scallops and Asparagus (3.5): immaculate.

Su Zhou is a city in southeastern China that is associated with the dish more commonly referred to as tongpo pork (see most recently 6.246 Tungpo-Style Braised Pork Belly).

The rendition at Summer Palace was excellent.  Silky smooth fat and perfectly seasoned, plus crispy bokshoy and fluffy mantou buns.
