Zhenjiang Pork Chops at Lucky River [San Francisco]

I went to Lucky River for dinner last night, and ordered the Zhenjiang Sweet and Sour Pork Chops, which were my favorite from the Chowdown there back in 2007. They aren't on the regular English menu, but it seems that they are always available (and it might be in Chinese on the wall, not sure). They are listed on the set-meals menu in English, which is how i was able to order them.

Anyway, they were still really great. Crispy fried, thin pork chops coated in a sweet and vinegary sauce—sour and sticky. Huge serving for $10.

We also had Hunan stringbeans, which weren't too spicy, and were cooked well- still a nice snap to them, but not underdone.

Complimentary dessert was a warm coconut/tapioca (or sago?) soup, which was very nice.

Total bill for 2 people was $18 before tip. Enough food for both of us, plus plenty of leftovers for lunch.

Lucky River is on Monterey Ave @ Gennessee in SF
