You Don't Want To Live Next To China's 'Bacon Apartment'

You Don't Want To Live Next to China's

Some people hang clothes on their balcony. This resident, it seems, hangs meat. Lots of it.

Online in China, photos of what looks to be a butcher working out of an apartment have popped up online. If this resident is not a butcher, then he or she certainly has an interesting hobby.

Large amounts of pork are being cured by draping them on the balcony and on the windows' burglar bars. Hope the air quality is good in Wuhan!

Obviously, the photos are surprising many Chinese net users and are now circulating on the country's biggest news sites, such as iFeng.

Chinese bacon (腊肉 or "la rou") is different from Western-style bacon. As website SeriousEats points out, Chinese bacon is made from pork belly and air-cured. Probably not usually on an apartment balcony.

    All that smog will act as an extra preservative

    Guaranteed authentic! The taste of wuhan.

      Having lived in Wuhan for 2 years (thankfully around the university where there isn't much industry) the air quality there is pretty bad. The water quality there is VERY bad. Having said that, I didn't get food poisoning once while I was there. Plenty of alcohol poisoning from the Er Guo Tou, but that's another story :-)

    Why do they have window cages so high up? are chinese burglars that good?

      Ninjas...

        That travel all the way from Japan to China to steal!!??

      Yep. You'd be surprised how devious and resourceful burglars are in China. Put it this way, chances are that someone is watching you pretty much all the time, since the population is so large and the cities are so crowded.

    Adds a new meaning to the term 'smoked bacon'.

      more like 'Smoged Bacon' Amirite?

      ...I'll go see myself out now

    There's a place in Perth that sells air cured pork sausage...,it kinda didn't meet Australian health standards so is sold "under the counter" so to speak.

    I don't want to live next to it. I want to live in it. Just think bout all that bacon! Mmmmmmmmmm bacon

    they should check it could be a serial killer

    Hate to be that guy but...

    How is this in anyway related to gaming?

    I'm sorry but that is freaking disgusting, just to be near that place, the entire area would reek of that smell coming from that apartment full of pork.
