Hua Ji

10-17 Hua Ji
When I read on Bionic Bites about Hua Ji , I was beyond intrigued.  So on this beautiful autumn afternoon, I decided to take a walk down stinky Allen street, basking in the warm sunlight so see what this place was all about.  I must admit, until the last moment before ordering, even with our most trusted recommendation, I contemplated forgoing the pork chop for the chicken leg.  That's because, however tasty, fried pork chops are too commonly too dry.  But glad I am  to have stuck with the pork chop, and oh how excellent the pork chop was.  Flavorful, with a nice crunch on the outside, and  tender & juicy on the inside.  This is practically a miracle and I'm craving it again already.  That being said, I do think the gravy and the pickled vegetables that accompanies the meat is better at Excellent Pork Chop House, and even Wah Mei.  But considering the superiority of the meat, I won't be getting a this dish elsewhere any time soon.
