the introduction to din tai fong's pork chop rice made him think of it all the time. and finally, he gave in to temptation.
pork chop rice - super juicy pork chop, he has probably never eaten anything like that elsewhere. the rice was well coated with egg too, not too oily either. thumbs up.
braised beef noodles - had been eyeing this the other time, and made the choice of rice. of course he wouldn't let it go this time round. super tender beef chunks, only 4 though.
scooped a small bowl for wife, saved the large one for himself
naninanibooboo - his big bowl of noodles as compared to hers. well in the end he ordered yet another bowl for her, so it wouldn't have made any difference anyway.
prepared the relish while waiting for the final dish
pork and shrimp dumplings - eat them up in one bite, otherwise the soup will spurt out.
