Chinese Barbecue Pork

Traditionally served as an appetizer, barbecue pork is commonly seen as a bright red or magenta color. The book describes barbecue pork as "It takes a strong person to resist slices of glistening roast pork, crisp and dripping with caramelized juices." (97) The first step to making barbecue pork is to marinate a pork belly in a sauce of rice wine, soy sauce, sugar, garlic, hoisin sauce, and five-spice powder for about 2-3 hours.
After the pork has marinated, the next step is to coat all the pork with honey and then roast the pork in the oven for about 45 minutes, and about halfway through flip the pork. The pork is done when the outside begins to crisp. 
Once the pork has cooled, start to cut it into thin slices and serve.
If you were cooking this meal, what would you have served it with?
