Daily highlight #76: From the mouth right to the heart

Without tasting, it's almost impossible to tell the five spice braised pig heart (bottom right and top left) from the stripped five spice braised tongue. At last, the taste buds know better and found the difference in texture. The heart is far more dense and springy than the comparatively spongy tongue, which holds the spices better in its looser grains. So while my mom enjoyed the chew of the heart, I couldn't get enough of the more seasoned tongue pieces. You could say that we found a good way to share. :)
