I tried the bacon and barbecued meat from a brand called SuperTop Frozen Bbq. They have a branch in Penang island, another 2 in the mainland of Penang island as well as a few branches around Malaysia.
Their bacon comes in luxuriously big slices, so you get more bites in each bacon strip. As for their barbecued meat (which is known as ‘bakwa’ in Chinese, also known as dried pork or Chinese pork jerky), it comes in short stick style and also the usual flattened wafer thin slices. Their barbecued meat is sweeter than some other barbecued meat available so if you have a sweet tooth, this is for you.
Sometimes people say eating meat or sweetened meat is not good. At the end of the day, if you overeat one type of food, it will be detrimental, even if it’s healthy food you’re eating. For example if they say eating cucumber is good for you and you eat 20 whole cucumber in a day without eating anything else, it will also not be good for your health as you will lack other nutritient in your body and the cucumber will become too cooling for your body. So it’s eating in moderation. If you’re not a full time vegan or vegetarian, consuming bakwa in moderation is alright. Chinese like to bring bakwa for open house visits to give to the host during Chinese New Year or to give bakwa when they visit people during other times of the year.
Here is our video about their pork meat and bacon.
