Does anyone know of Taiwanese-style deep fried pork chop better than Sinbala in Arcadia? Willing to travel for good food!

Also, does anyone have a good recipe for this as well?

      Thank you for the response! I tried Old Country Cafe's pork chop rice plate yesterday. It had a sweeter taste (I have been told this is the common taste you will find in LA) and less crispy outside. I have asked around and have been told of other places (Nice Time Cafe), but find Sinbala in Arcadia to be the gold standard. The texture and flavor of Sinbala make it unique...but they could make it a little thicker to make it even better!

        Do you mean Nice Time Deli? I can't attest for their pork chop rice, but they make some good food (i.e. fried chicken rolls, eggplant w/ basil). You might want to check out two hole-in-the wall Taiwanese places in Temple City for their pork chop rice (they are literally within 2 blocks of each other).

          Yes, I meant Nice Time Deli. Now I have 3 on the list! Thanks!
