Soho Park's Pork Chop
Pork Chop! In the past couple of months, I have seen many restaurants in Cebu that offer their own version of pork chops. One great example is "Fat Bastard" over at The Weekend. I recently visited the newly-opened Soho Park by Chef Robert Leonhardt and got to try his Pork Chop with Israeli Couscous, and Mediterranean Vegetables and black olives. It was pretty good and I am very excited to try the other dishes at this restaurant.
Soho Park's Pork Chop with Israeli Couscous, and Mediterranean Vegetables and black olives
The dish has basically 2 elements, the Pork Chop, and the siding. The chop is from local pork and it weighs 300 grams a serving. The siding comes with lots of delicious veggies and sauces. An order costs 550 pesos and it will surely satisfy any hungry man.
The pork chop is first vacuum-packed with some spices and aromatics then goes to a hot water bath for a couple of minutes. It then goes on the flat grill for finishing. It is crispy and perfectly cooked. It is served with some gravy.
The siding has Mediterranean vegetables like eggplant and tomato. There is also grilled onions that have different sauces on it. It looks so pretty that it did not want to eat it at first.
Soho Park actually serves wines and this one is perfect with the Fat Bastard Pinot Noir. I really enjoyed eating it and maybe the next time I will order this, I would definitely get some rice. The pork chop and the gravy are so yummy that it will just make you eat a lot of rice and probably make you even wish that they have an unli-rice promo. The Meditteranean veggies were bursting with flavors and the Isreali couscous gave the dish another texture. It is a well-thought-of dish and I am pretty confident that a lot of pork lovers out there would enjoy this as much as I did. Well done, Chef!
I was seated near where the food comes out and I saw a lot of mouthwatering things that the Soho Park team made. My list of the things that I want to taste on my next visit just got longer the longer I stayed at the new restaurant. One good example is that picture above of steak, egg, and potatoes. I am planning to have breakfast there sometime. Would you like to come with me?
