Two for One Dinners: PorkWritten by Michele Webb
If you find leftovers boring, uninviting or downright "yuck," then here are some ideas to put "zing" back into mealtime. With a little creativity your home-cooked meal can easily become a delicious meal another night. There are a six articles in this series, today we are going to look at what you can do with pork.
DINNER - NIGHT ONE: Braised Pork
Put a pork tenderloin in oven to bake slowly in orange juice, ginger, garlic and brown sugar until it is tender enough to pull apart with a fork. Serve it with easy-to-prepare steamed rice and stir-fried brocoli. Store leftover meat in refrigerator for up to 2 to 3 days.
DINNER - NIGHT TWO: Mu Shu Wraps
Using leftover pork that you have baked, shred remaining tenderloin, hoisin sauce and shredded carrots and Napa cabbage. Roll mixture in warm flour tortillas topped with hoisin sauce. Serve with vegetables (jicama, carrots, zucchini, celery, Napa cabbage, green onions) sauteed lightly with soy sauce, garlic and ginger in sesame oil.

Hong Kong Street Food
If you have visited Hong Kong in past, you should have tried typical HK street food stalls and had a taste of famous curry fish balls there. If you haven't, then you must make sure you will try it next time you are there.
What is so special about it? Standing in front of a food stall like this, you will be able to see a wide selection of food choices. My favourite would be curry fish balls and pig intestines. Of course these may not sound mouth-watering to some of you but I am sure you will be able to find something which you fancy eating. Octopus balls, beef balls, minced pork balls, octopus, squids, chilli wrapped with fish meat, chicken wings or tips, fish balls and lettuce in soup, fake shark fin soup, cow tripe and many others are all available.
Just go to Mong Kok, you can easily find one at each street corner. Then of course, these types of stalls are everywhere in HK.
Most of these stalls do not provide seating but some do. With those few which provide seating, very often you will also find noodles available. When I was small, I used to enjoy a bowl of these noodles for lunch. At that time, it did not cost me more than HK$1 per bowl. These days, you will not be able to enjoy one bowl of such noodles for at least HK$15.
