PINEAPPLE BUN PORKCHOP SANDWICH!

When I issued an apology yesterday evening, after lunch, for my recent horrendous posts about several people, almost all of whom are dubious folks anyhow, one reader seized upon it to ask "So what were you eating that resulted in this totally tone-deaf apology?"

Well, upping the bloodsugar level improves the mood immeasurably.
So it actually doesn't matter what I ate.

But in fact it was a tasty sandwich at the Washington Bakery and Cafe just below Grant Avenue in Chinatown. Something they've recently introduced, which is not at all good for you. But it's exceedingly tasty, and even Jonathan, the target of the half-donkeyed apology, would love it.
If he didn't keep kosher.


FRIED PORK CUTLET ON A PINEAPPLE BUN
With thin-cut french fries

菠蘿豬排包 'po lo jyu paai baau'.
同薯條 'tong syu tiu'.

The cut of pork is boned and battered, so not an actual chop, as the standard Chinese name would suggest, but what in Hong Kong is called a cutlet (吉列 'kat lit'). A term which shows up on nearly every chachanteng menu.

Putting one of those things in a sliced pineapple bun is from one point of view sheer culinary heresy, and from another it's staggeringly brilliant.
Personally, I am of the latter school of thought.

It was utterly delicious.
Made me a believer.
Christian.



PS.: There is no pineapple (菠蘿 'po lo') in a pineapple bun. It's called a pineapple bun because of the appearance.
