Roast Suckling Pig

Introduction & Highlights

Perfect for picking up at a street stall, the ‘Roast Suckling Pig’ is a popular delicacy in Hainan island's Lingao County.

To be eaten while its hot, before losing the original taste, the delicious roast pig releases an irresistible barbeque aroma. Its tender meat and crispy golden skin are a temptation for all the foodies who enjoy trying out local delicacies.

To seal in the exclusive flavour that makes this such a special dish, the roasting process lasts up to five hours, but there's also another secret. Before being cooked, the meat should be marinated for a couple of hours in a special sauce which includes stand-out ingredients such as garlic, onions, ginger and soy sauce.

Local people normally eat this dish for breakfast and if you're looking for something to go along with the roast pig, be sure to go for a bowl of Hainanese sauerkraut. Together they provide a divine combination, which will have your taste buds partying.
