Congee and pork floss are famous Chinese delicacies. Congee is a type of rice porridge served with different side dishes and toppings such as salted duck eggs, tofu and lettuce. Pork floss—known as rousing in China—is a dried meat product with a light and fluffy texture similar to cotton candy. It melts in your mouth and leaves a sweet and salty flavor.
