Excellent Pork Chop House

3 Doyers Street #1
New York, NY 10013

I visited this restaurant tonight for dinner with a friend who used to live in Chinatown. This place is well known for it's pork chops and with a name like "Excellent Pork Chop House", I was ready for the experience.

We both ordered the Pork Chop Noodle Soup with mung bean with noodle of choice. The waitress brought over a large soup bowl for each of us filled with a lovely broth, bean sprouts, mung bean noodles, and chopped pickled cabbage. Next came the plate of pork chops. I detected the flavor of 5 spice and the pork chops were tender and tasty.

The decor is not very fancy, more like a family owned restaurant. Dishes and prices written in Chinese on bright colorful paper adorn the walls. An English menu sits on your table along with a caddy holding disposable bamboo chopsticks and plastic eating utensils. Their famous hot sauce sits in a glass container next to the napkins. The hot sauce is mild with a base of black bean. Deliciously fragrant.

Service was good and prices cheap by New York City standards. Judging on the amount of people that were coming in on this cool rainy Summer night this place is quite popular.
