My colleague and I had lunch and although there was a long queue of close to 10 people ahead of us, things do move fast here.
We ordered the Hainanese Pork chop and the Braised Pork in claypot. Both dishes were served pretty quickly and were very well done.
The pork chop was thinly sliced and fried to a nice crisp. The batter was well balanced with the thin slice of pork that it coated so you get an even balance of flavors in each mouthful. The fried pork was served on a bed of ketchup sauce and I'm sure they do this only right before serving the food since the pork chop wasn't drenched with the sauce. The end result is a beautifully hot, freshly fried, crispy battered slice of pork that still has it's crunch in every bite and well coated on the side with sauce.
The stewed pork in a claypot was a dish that I would normally avoid due to the sheer amount of fat that comes in each serving. The pork is stewed long enough for it to turn into a chunk of melt in your mouth beautiful gooeyness that's artery chocking but so good at the same time that you just can't help eat more of the bad stuff. There.
The sauce is not overly salty and has a lot of fat in it. It goes really really well with rice and will take a lot of effort not to over indulge on this good stuff once you get started.
Overall, the food that we tried were excellent and I couldn't be happier. The ambiance, well, just like any other place in this overcrowded and densely populated little island, the place at lunch time is crowded and stuffy. Still, that hasn't stopped us from planning our second visit already.
