Roasted Pork Rice

Pier 21 food court is so easy to be found. It is in Terminal 21 shopping mall fifth floor. The location is also convenient, you can get there either from BTS Asok or MRT Sukhumvit Station. On top of these, the price is so reasonable, with less than 50 bahts at writing time, you can get a lot of choice of dish there.

This dish like the roasted pork noodle in Tesco Lotus Rama I's food court, the pork slices have it trademark with red lining. To achived the red lining and before sliced, the pork had been marinated for hours. People told me that, you need to have Hoisin Sauce, honey, red wines and spices for the marination. Honey, no wonder it tastes delicious sweet. For the perfection, the soy sauce mixture then is poured on top of the rice, excellent. I am told also, you can find this dish commonly in other country like Hong Kong and Taiwan as well.
