Between the two, my clear winner is definitely the unbeatable champion of flavours—Mala Xiang Guo. I held onto high hopes for the marinade, and I can’t tell you enough how satisfying it is that it doesn’t disappoint one bit. The Original 1945 is a great classic that is fitting for even the most fabulous of Lunar New Year gatherings, but the mala flavour is what you’ll get if you want to leave an impression on your guests. It’s an inspiring take that’s not for the faint-hearted.

We loved how crispy yet juicy it all was... Also the Lychee and Apple Wood Bak Kwa was individually packaged so it was so easy to share. The Mala Xiang Guo Bak Kwa was actually spicy but still tasty ;)
Overall: Perfect for gifting, enjoying with family or treating yourself!!
The Original 1945 Bak Kwa is easy to bite through. The tenderness of the meat is noteworthy and exceptional. It had the right amount of sweetness that came from being smoked with Lychee and Apple wood.
The Original Bak Kwa is fresh and tender so it’s great for both the young and old to enjoy.

It’s a nice mix of the fat as well as lean meat. I super dig this (Mala Xiang Guo). This is so good and I love that they are not scared to be hot and spicy and I like the balance of it. I will give my friends and family. Looks good, tastes good!
It has very good texture to it. Its like not too overpowering. This is an elevated versionc(Mala Xiang Guo)
from the original one.
This is like bacon Bak Kwa (Mala Xiang Guo Bak Kwa) with a bit of heat. Make pasta with this! Treat it like for making carbonara, or Arrabiata, shiok man
Sweet, savoury, and oh-so-sinful.
Well, spice up this Chinese New Year with FYRE’s bak kwa. Using lychee and apple wood for the smoking process definitely sounds like an interesting option, but what’s really interesting is their Mala Xiang Guo flavor. By frying mala and spices together, FYRE has come up with a tantalizing flavor that will definitely delight mala fans.
