If you ask a Shanghainese what dish he likes to eat, it will most likely be braised pork. This bang braised pork is made of fat and thin pork belly, bright red in color, cooked at just the right heat to produce a fat but not greasy taste. It is characterized by rich, salty and sweet, thick oily red sauce. Thick oily red sauce is also a gourmet preference of Shanghai cuisine, representing the gourmet taste of Shanghainese.
