Great simple Hainanese food! (Hainan's an island in the south of China, the cooking is rare in the US.)
Light thin crispy shelled Hainanese pork chops with moist tender meat (actually, more like Chinese schnitzels) that come with a lightly spicy sweet and sour dipping sauce.
Evocative mutton soup, flavoured with a well balanced array of herbs, and earthy herbal brew that's still light and easygoing. Super tender mutton, without any animal odours.
Reputedly one of the best fried beef kway teow (~1 inch wide rice noodles) in the country (I can't vouch for the hype, but everyone seems to say that). It is excellent though -- the beef is firm, plump and tender, slipping nicely on the palate. The kway teow has a nice wok flavour, mildly charred, and perfectly soft and chewy.
Sambal fried sweet potato leaves -- deliciously soft and spicy.
An ok live prawns coated with oat flakes and fried -- slight sticky sweetness to the coat, but not super crispy.
