Your Pork Chop House Excellency

There are just some secrets, like the massive sports betting ring I run, that I will never discuss on a blog.

There are other secrets, however, that I’m more than happy to reveal. One of them is the braised chicken soup with noodle at Excellent Pork Chop House, a Taiwanese soul food joint on Doyers Street. For $5.95, you get delicious chicken soup with shiitake mushroom accompanied by a separate bowl of noodles, bean sprouts, minced pork, and pickled veggies. Top it off with an optional hard boiled egg ($.50) and way too much hot chili sauce like I do, and you have a meal that’s satisfying, cheap, and fast.

For dessert, you can hop over to Fay-Da for a coconut bun and tea. Like Colt 45, it works every time.
