char sui could be SO MUCH MORE.
it's normally roasted at a fairly high heat causing all the tendons to seize leaving the meat chewy and if the place really sucks, dry as well.
Pulled pork is taking a crappy piece of pork meat, and slow cooking it until all the tendons and collagen just melt and fall apart. Collagen that has broken down = deliciousness.
The best "char sui" i have had was done by white people with pork belly and came in sandwich form. Bunk Sandwiches in portland.
