Pork is the Chinese staple meat, and is available all over China, except for Muslim areas. If the menu just says 肉 (rou /roh/ i.e. "meat"), then it will be a pork dish. Pork is considered to be the most versatile meat in China, with a flavor that can be combined successfully with the greatest range of other food types.
