comments on another thread about lunch plates led me to New Lun Ting ..... aka the pork chop place.
I never have tried this place before although I often walked by in my youth and noticed the place was popular with older Chinatown residents ( mainly men in the old days) ...... I was usually headed down the street to the Jackson Cafe ( RIP ). The recent mention of roast pork got my attention and that's one of the plates that we ordered ..... also got the beef tongue with brown sauce/gravy. Very generous plates - big scoop of rice and lots of meat along with a good portion of canned corn. I took a full small box home ...... had to go back to work and it would have been a long afternoon if I ate it all. The roast pork was tender and moist and anointed with the brownish/orangey gravy ..... good but not as savory as I remember the roast pork at Mariposa- which had more carmelization and a salty crust. The beef tongue was also tender and moist and served in a very generous portion. The tea and diner style tomato soup started things off ..... then the rice plate - followed by a lemon jello square ( nice tang/full flavor). New Lun Ting is now frequented by elderly women as well as men ........ and everybody who wants a bargain meal. IIRC there used to a U shaped counter ? Now there is still a long counter on one side of the restaurant for single diners, several booths on the opposite side and tables in between. Very old school kind of place. The waitress was quite affable.
