"Siu Mei" means roasted meat dishes which are famous Cantonese cuisine.
Nowadays, in Hong Kong, most of the roasted pigs are supplied by central roasted meat factories,
but this shop insists on producing their own.
This part of alley was abused by this shop for preparing their products.
They hung the pigs in that small room for natural drying before putting them into a charcoal furnace.
When a roasted pig was cut into small pieces, we call them “roasted pork” or “roasted meat”.
Sometimes the entire pig is purchased for special occasions.
A tradition is to celebrate a Chinese film's opening with a pig,
as the tradition suggests that the pig is sacrificed to ward off evils
in return to pray for the film's success.
