Lim Keng Guan Dried Meat (Unminced) - Ipoh

The one good thing about Lim Keng Guan Dried Meat is the use of a whole piece of pork. It is then sliced into thin slivers (exaggeration here) and BBQed. The slices is even thinner than the minced meat counterpart.

There are 3 simple reasons in my preference for the former. Whole rather than minced meat taste better as there is no chance for adulteration with lower quality cuts. The texture is better. Minced meat slices tend to be lumpy, rough and breaks up unnaturally when eaten. And finally, minced meat version is sliced into thicker pieces or else it will not be able to hold up on its own.
LKG Dried Meat is full-bodied in taste, the texture is excellent and the unprocessed meat structure is perfect. The only drawback - is t is a bit too sweet but on the bright side LKG used less oil than usual. 7.5/10.
The minced version was also quite devoid of oil. But I was given stock that was not top quality. It may be old stock. So I did not really enjoy this.

See, this is why I love Malaysian barbecued/dried meat (bak kwa/long yoke) - it's much thinner than the Macanese version and the texture is just that much better. :)
