Before we moved to China, we assumed that sweet and sour pork was just a sweet n' sticky western-style Chinese dish. But then we arrived in Harbin and discovered that here sweet and sour pork is their most famous dish. We are definitely in China.. so it's definitely Chinese food! However, the bright-red rendition we eat in North America is nothing like the tangy, vinegary, extra crispy dish they serve here. Watch our latest vlog to see the local delicacy in action!
The Harbin guo bao rou is truly both sour and sweet and we just can't get enough of it.
