After shopping at the Alemany farmers market today, I headed over to Portola's developing "Chinatown" along San Bruno Avenue. I window-shopped the length of the commercial district, eying the hanging meats at three deli counters. The roast pig at Wing Hing was the most beautiful, and the counter man pointed to a section that was my platonic ideal of boon fei so with fine-grained, bubbly crisped skin and succulent meat striated with fat.
Here's the photo of the two-pound hunk I purchased. And, it tastes as good as it looks.
