There’s no denying in the fact that Hong Kong’s fried pig intestines are not the most appealing street food. But locals, adventurous eaters or not, get a constant craving for this skewered snack. That just says a whole lot about how good these fried pig intestines can be.

For HK$12 ($1.50), you get a stick of very crispy, deep-fried and surprisingly flavorful entrails that will remind you of our beloved bacon. Underneath the crunchy layer are the soft and tender parts of the intestines. Dip this in a sauce of your choice and don’t forget to add some chili sauce, too for a startlingly mild kick. A cup of fruit juice would best accompany this treat.

Try this, or you’ll be bringing a bunch of regrets back home.
