Stir-fried pork jowl and winter radishes – Mission Chinese Food

Project 365: Day 41

Happy Valentine’s Day! Silverfox dropped by after work last night and dropped of a beautiful vase of roses, aw! They’re absolutely beautiful and you can view them below. Tonight we are having dinner at Fish & Farm. It’ll be our first time dining there so I’m pretty excited. We looked at a few other restaurants and all of them seem to be doing a pre fixe, and some of them a little too spendy for us right now. Fish & Farm’s pre fixe includes 4 courses and a glass of champagne for $75 per person. Not too bad.

With fermented black bean, mint, red perilla, served with steamed rice. $11
Mission Chinese Food, San Francisco

Red perilla refers to some of the greens (or reds, hehe) in this dish. (Most of the green you see is actually the radish tops though.) They’re also known as red shiso and these appear to be young sprouts. This dish was very tasty! It had a pungent odor from the radishes and leaves which was somehow familiar to me. The porl jowl, although super fatty, were so good and the whole dish was warm and comforting. Perfect for the cold weather.
