Sai Jai Thai Restaurant, San Francisco
This dish isn’t what I expected. I thought that the pork would be cut up into little pieces and incorporated into the fried rice. Thank god it wasn’t! This dish was SO good and it’s really all about the pork. The the thick slices of grilled pork shoulder were SO flavorful and juicy. You can put it on top of anything and I would eat the entire plate. Noms!
