Have you been to Macau? I personally have not, but from what I gathered, they serve some really good pork chop buns there. I was at Lot 10 Hutong a couple of days back to check out their latest stall, serving what I felt is really good Porco Macau Pork Chop Bun. Check some of the photos I managed to snap of the food below.

Located inside the well-curated Heritage Food Village of Lot 10 Hutong, we tried their signature offering, the Macau Pork Chop Bun, a spawn from the clash of the Portugues and Macanese culinary heritage. What's more interesting and special is the chef behind bringing this delicious dish to Lot 10 Hutong, Chef Yoke.

A brief background on how Chef Yoke learnt this delicious cuisine in order. While working in Guangzou, Chef Yoke took the opportunity to frequent Macau, where she befriended other chefs who delved in creating pork chop buns. Learning the art of making the snack from a veteren who had spent his life cooking in a famous pork chop bun restaurant in Macau, the rest is history.

Check out how thick the Pork Chop is!
These pork chops come in standalone pork chop buns, or you can order them in sets, from noodle sets, to rice sets, anyway you like them. Each of these pork chops have been pounted with a mallet to tenderize and flatten the meat for enhanced flavour absorption. It is then marinated with rice wine, brandy, spices and other secret ingredients for a day. Yum!

The marinated pork chop meat is deep fried to perfection, with a nice caramelized colour to the slabs of meat. I would love for it to be more tender though, as it is still a bit tough. Maybe I'm just used to fattier meats! Love the soft buns used in the dish, when served hot it went really well with the pork chops.
|Macau Curry Fish Ball - RM6.90|
We tried the Macau Fish Ball Curry as well. The curry is just too flavourful, going well with the pork chop buns should you want to dip it in. With curry broth made in the typical yet distinctive Hong Kong & Macau style, I wouldn't mind having more of this tasty snack.
