Mangalitsa Pork in Hong Kong

Mangalitsa pork makes this review of a Hong Kong restaurant. It reads like the reviewer loved the stuff. Emphasis (and currency conversion) is by me:
The ‘pig in sheep’s clothing’ ($270 HKD -- $35 USD) is another fun offering. A fatty slab of Mangalitsa pork belly is slow-cooked to show off its wagyu-like qualities. The meat is then garnished with curls of crispy pork crackling and an insanely satisfying lasagne laced with plenty of cheese and tender pork cheeks. This is definitely a keeper.

Waves Pacific has done a great job selling Mangalitsa in Hong Kong, especially considering that it is a terrible time to be selling a super-premium luxury product like Mangalitsa pork.

The pork industry defends horrendous cruelty to animals -- factory farmers keep breeding pigs locked in two-foot-wide crates where the pigs can’t even turn around for nearly their entire lives. Eight states have passed laws against this type of animal abuse, yet groups like the National Pork Producers Council still support it.

John - Here's my thoughts on that topic.
