Excellent Pork Chop House

February 19, 2011 § Leave a comment

Wayne and I always seem to eat here at Excellent Pork Chop House during most of our trips to NYC. I was introduced to the restaurant by MiRi when I came into the city to visit her, but apparently Wayne had already been to it before with a friend from college. One would think that while in a city known for its unending number of gastronomically delightful eateries, we would choose some other place to try out instead of always returning to Excellent Pork Chop House. But we usually end up here for our first meal in the city because the food is tasty and familiar; there is no ambiance– tea is served in styrofoam cups and there is always a possibility of having to share a table with strangers– but the service is fast; and we are starving when we first arrive so we can’t be bothered to wait in line or even search for a new place. It’s almost a tradition without our calling it a tradition, and I confess that I start craving the restaurant’s namesake, pork chop over rice, as we near the city. While it is helpful that all the menu items are inexpensively priced at around $5 to $6– for the record, the pork chop over rice is $5.35–, we would go there regardless of the price because the food tastes so deliciously home-y; it’s good comfort food after a long trip up. The pork chop over rice dish is a well-seasoned pork chop that lightly covered with sweet potato powder and is pan-fried until crisp and juicy before being  placed over a bed of rice that is covered with a marinated ground pork sauce, seasoned cabbage, and pickled vegetable, all waiting to be mixed together.
