Pork Chop Noodle Soup

I have never had pork chop noodle soup in Taiwan because the stuff I've had in the US sucks. When I go back, I just skip it. But Aunt Wu insisted I try this pork chop noodle soup. Holy shit it was good. Entirely different animal. If you have ever gotten this at say Excellent Pork Chop House on Doyers, you'll think its ho-hum but the secret is the stock. A lot of people are lazy and just throw a bland stock over noodles and fry a pork chop.

This place makes a master pork stock and marinates the pork significantly before frying. Its out of control. I also got some oysters with ginger, pork with ginger, and tea eggs.


  1. I love Taiwanese pork chop noodle soup. This used to be the only thing I would order at any Chinese/Taiwanese restaurant. I then tried it in Taipei and it was EVEN better! There is a place in Flushing that does it pretty good. They specialize in Taiwanese lunchboxes. It's on Roosevelt between Prince and College Point. It's kind of a hole in the wall place, but the owner is so friendly and funny!

  2. I know! I thought the bootleg was still good but this is some futuristic shit!

  3. Had better choose two close together fingers in addition, like medium and index finger, middle finger and ring finger or ring finger and little finger, never in the center cheap thomas sabo schmuck bracelet across a “mountain”. Iner general use kind of parlance is: The color and luster has to be consistent while wearing two rings on the same hand, and when a ring is complicated another must be simple.
