Cheese Baked Rice with Pork (and the days of Lil Taipei)

Cheese Baked Rice with Pork

I had a Hong Kong style "Cheese Baked Rice with Pork" about 2 to 3 years ago at Little Taipei food court at Sunnybank. I think it was the Hong Kong food house was right next to exit to the bigger food court outside opposite of the bubble tea house. Now it's not there anymore. It's all shut off. I really have no idea what happened to the food court now. Maybe it breached health and safety regulations? Who knows.

: you have to climb 2 flight of stairs. Right hand door entrance.

The court used to be noisy and so so busy. People eating, drinking, laughing and waiting to be seated. Waiters being off their feet the whole time serving hot orders. Cleaners working non stop. And you had so many choices of what to eat from Vietnamese, Chinese, Korean, and these little bubble tea shops. And now you only have David's Sizzling Steaks and the Korean food house in the corner surrounded empty food houses, a creepy stair case and not to mention the creepy toilets lol. Oh and now there is one cleaner waiting for you to leave so the tables be cleaned lol. Very dead. Not much competition there. I remember the Koreans packed up and left at cause no one lined up to their food house and there were so many people lining up at David's Sizzling Steaks. It was really sad.....I can imagine tumble weed floating across the food court ....:P

Anyway back to this Cheese Baked Rice with Pork I had. I remember it being quite weird.....cheese and rice? Eww I thought. I remember the cook recommended me this dish cause he said it was "nice". Yes I listen to anyone's recommendation lol. It was pretty new to me. Cheese and rice I thought. Some Asian-Western fusion food? The waiter served me with the dish and I dunked my fork in and inside was melting cheese, lightly fried rice and pork chops! and this nice rich tangy tomato sauce. Even though it was a weird combination it was good for I think $7 with a free can of coke. Pretty good deal. The flavour just exploded in my mouth! Cheesy, tomatoey and salty. YUM!!

I have to make it myself sometime...
