Roast Pork with Gravy in the Los Angeles or Orange County area?

Wass up fellow Feasters!

Any take on the best Roast Pork with Gravy in the Los Angeles or Orange County area?

I haven't found any spots comparable to:

1. Tsukenjo's lunch truck (Honolulu)
2. L&L Hawaiian BBQ (Sacramento-Mack Road)
3. L&L Hawaiian BBQ (Oceanside-Vista way)

Note: Most L&Ls do not serve Roast Pork with Gravy - but if you should find one that does - try it - truly incredible!

Much Appreciated and get Hyped!

  1. Paul's Kitchen in downtown Los Angeles.
    Not sure if it's on the menu, but ask for it. You won't regret. It's in a league of it's own.

      Hi Monku, is Paul's Kitchen's roast pork & gravy similar to the old Woey Loy Goey Restaurant on Jackson St. in San Francisco Chinatown (if you've ever eaten there)?

        Last time I ate at Woey Loy Goey maybe 20 years ago but didn't eat roast pork & gravy.

        Big plate of rice topped with a generous amount of roast pork and light colored gravy. The more I think about it you have to ask for it, it's not on the menu.

          Is Paul's Kitchen's roast pork & gravy like char sui or like a slice of pork roast?

            Char sui....and their char sui is some of the best.

            1. re: monku

              yes I like the char sui at Pauls Kitchen. Last time I had the Tommy Lasorda dinner with my son, we ate allot of food and took home the balance for lunch the next day.. They had some char sui on the appertizer plate.. Good chicken salad there too but I digress..

              1. re: Foodandwine

                Can't beat the Tommy LaGorda Special $10.25/p. Three of us usually get it for two ($20.50). Still more than enough food.

    2. Clifton's Cafeteria perhaps?

      1. Sounds like something you'd find at a Boston Market

        1. We're talking "local line grinds" Cliftons and BM wouldn't come close.

          1. Had it recently at Rutt's Hawaiian Cafe on Washington Blvd. in Mar Vista. It was a special that night at a slightly discounted price, but it is on their regular menu - so available any day.
