This is a dish that is good enough not just for adults only to eat but it's kids friendly too. Regarded as one classic and popular dish that can be found in many HK's style cafe, this tasty dish is made up of few portions that is fried rice at the bottom, then on top of that comes pieces of fried pork cutlet, covered with some tangy tomato ketchup and lastly a layer of melted cheese at the top. The next time when i cook this, i am going to bake the dish a little bit longer so that the cheese gets really golden and perhaps more cheese. Apart from that, i am pretty happy with the taste
I would like to say thank you to all who have participated in our Bake Along Chinese New Year Cookies Event, thanks for your support , i hope to drop by your blogs and the rest in the next few days after i get myself more organised with all the Chinese New Year preparation. Hopefully we can get some inspiration from one another cos i know some of you are still baking. So here i would like to wish all of you who are celebrating CNY, have a wonderful Chinese New Year celebration, May the Year of the Horse bring us all good health and prosperity, a cheerful year and Gong Xi Fa Cai!
