Wet Thar Dote Htoe (Pork Stick)

Hi everybody let me talk to you about my very favourite Myanmar food, wet thar dote htoe (pork stick).






Have you ever tried pork stick? Countless pork stick booths can be seen on the streets. It is very popular. Pork stick is a kind of snack, pork put onto a stick. It is not the same as pork curry, it is mixed with sweet spices and just the delicious smell of it can make you feel hungry.







This snack’s origin is China but it has been adapted as a traditional snack for more than 50 years in Myanmar.



Various parts of the pig are cooked with soy-bean sauce and seasoning. The parts include carious internal organs like intestine, liver, kidney, spleen, heart, lungs, tongue as well as meat, skin and cartilage. They are then cut into small pieces, and put on tiny bamboo sticks and served. The vendor usually sells on the road side, with all the food served on a large metal pan with charcoal stove underneath. Customers sit around the pan and eat the food dipped in sauce. The meat is really delicious. If you want to try one, just walk in the streets of downtown Yangon. There are many shops there.





Now I really miss Wet Thar Dote Htoe and start to feel hungry. Similar Wet Thar Dote Htoe can be got in Singapore but taste is very different. If you come to our country and eat it, you will know it.
