Mashed Garlic Sauce with Pork Belly Rolls


Author have a say…

So I make a little adjustment of my own for more flexibility and also a suggestion of 2 types of serving methods. Method 1 is the common serving and method 2 is more towards the salad method. This is an idea of how to make this delicious dish, you could be more creative, add black fungus, roll with shredded carrot, and lots more possible combinations!
