Excellent Pork Chop House

Excellent Pork Chop House Excellent Pork Chop House is not a full-on Taiwanese restaurant but they do serve quite a few Taiwanese specialties. It’s pretty ghetto, serving tea and water in Styrofoam cups, but at least there’s an adequate amount of elbow room.

Stick to Chicken Leg over Rice or Pork Chop over Rice, deep fried but not greasy, comes with Swan Tsai (pickled mustard greens) and minced pork, you can add the red cooked egg. These are classics I grew up with and I just need to eat it every once in a while. The places in Flushing are better but this will fill the craving.

For something lighter, have the Shredded Pork and Preserved Vegetable Noodle Soup. It’s a clear pork broth (you can ask for extra) with a generous amount of noodles, pork, and Dza Tsai (preserved vegetable).

We also ordered Spicy Wontons and Stir Fried Rice Cakes but they very mediocre. Neither had too much flavor and the wontons were a bit watery.

For those unfamiliar with these dishes, they do have a nifty photo menu to help you order. The staff doesn’t speak much English so just point. It’s Chinatown prices, $34 for 4 people (including tax and tip), Chinatown service (you have to be proactive), and Chinatown decor (pretty ugly).
