聯華茶餐廳 (English name: Luen Wah Cafe) is like any other old school cha chan teng. Not trendy looking and usually filled with diners that don't really speak much. But on the front of the restaurant were several photos from magazines saying they had the best baked pork chop rice in town. Well ... I had to find out if this was true.Menu is in Chinese only. It seemed they served everything! As it's one of those really old school cha chan tengs, there are no photos on the menu and it's on the table or
Menu is in Chinese only. It seemed they served everything! As it's one of those really old school cha chan tengs, there are no photos on the menu and it's on the table or tacked onto the wall. There is also no 10% service charge.
Boyfriend ordered from the afternoon tea set menu. This is the deep fried fish with fries ($44). A very large piece of fish was placed in front of him. It was delicious. The fries were crispy and hot. The fish was cooked perfectly with a nice crunchy coating.
I had the baked pork chop rice ($63). This came with a bowl of Chinese soup made up of pork bones, carrot and Buddha fist. Sweet and not that much MSG.
Then the reason I came here. The baked pork chop rice. It was served in a metal dish. Size was fairly generous. The tomato sauce was very sweet. It was definitely old school as there were not bits of pineapple of bell peppers. And no cheese. It was just tomato sauce with pork chop over rice.
The rice was fried. This is a treat as a lot of places don't fry the rice any longer.
The pork chop was excelllent. It was pre-cut so there was no need for a knife. It was not only coated and fried so it was still crispy but it was cooked perfectly. Not dried out and still tender. Definitely one the best baked pork chop rice around. It reminded me of the ones my mother used to make.
A really nice little find for that real retro feel. Unsure if I'd be back but I'm glad I found this place.
