Chef Jia?

Any comments on or specific dish recommendations for Chef Jia, the humble Chinese restaurant next to the infamous House of Nanking?

Yesterday I tried the spicy pork with green beans dish and was not impressed. The pork was a bit tough and the sauce was very thick and tired. On the plus side, I asked for it extra spicy and it came about medium in my book. The starter soup, with fresh tofu and egg in a viscous broth, was also moderately spicy from the inclusion of vinegary chili paste. Otherall though it was a rather disappointing meal, in fact the pork dish was inferior to every dish I've had so far during the Lunch Series (with the possible exception of the orange beef from Human Home's).

Any favorites to recommend?
