San Choy Bau
San Choy Bau is a beautifully fresh and flavoursome Chinese dish that is packed full of delicious ingredients and is great fun to eat. Iceberg lettuce cups are ideal little hand-held bowls that you fill with a fragrant pork mince and top with crisp veges. If you’ve never tried it before then you must, it’ll become a firm favourite.
