Pork Rib Broth: Another special broth at Du Siao-Yue. This cuisine was found by chance. Ita��s all because master Lin tasted the pork rib broth in Singapore and he missed the flavor so he combined some ingredients together, adjusting the recipe with local ingredients to stew pork rib broth. The local ingredient includes pork ribs from pigs bred by the Plum Blossom Lake. When drinking the broth, you can enjoy a pleasant smell of garlic and Sichuan pepper, not to mention tender and flavorful pork ribs. Ita��s so tasty that you just cana��t stop drinking.
