Chinese Baked Pork Chop Rice 焗豬扒飯
One of the best "if you are really starving and in need of 'comfort food'" food ever. Hummm... Did that make any sense? Well, you know what I mean! Or, to be absolutely correct, you will know what I mean after you try this Chinese Baked Pork Chop Rice, or 焗豬扒飯. This is a local Hong Kong classic, an absolute standard at all the cha chaan teng, or 茶餐廳, in Hong Kong. Cha chaan teng is the name for the local style dinners/cafes that dot the culinary landscape of Hong Kong. Small affordable chinese food eateries that serve up fast, greasy food in big portions; interiors done up with lots of fluorescent lighting and rows of small eating booths. A cha chaan teng has to have a decent Chinese Baked Pork Chop dish to serve to the hungry masses if it wants to be taken seriously as an eatery!
