Married into a Taiwanese family, Morita
Nobuhisa has been in the Kaiseki cuisine business for
almost 10 years and recently opened this Japanese-style,
deep-fried pork chop restaurant behind the Legislative
Yuan, garnering the attention of politicians like as
Speaker Wang Jin-Pyng. Morita's grandparents ran a fried
pork chop restaurant and he learned all their secrets.
Loyal to their recipe, Morita chooses the freshest ingredients
and imports many others. Japan Kashiku uses the finest
Taiwanese quality portions of black pigs' meat. Set
meals include the NT$230 Pork Chop with Rice and the
NT$360 Tiered Tenderloin Pork Chop.
A. Tiered Tenderloin Pork Chop (NT$360):
Frozen rib meat is thinly sliced then lightly fried.
The meat is then piled in tiers and deep-fried again.
The texture is tender and the flavor sweet and fragrant
as it melts in your mouth.
B. Spring Onion Florets with Pork Chop
(NT$260): Rib meat is sliced in the middle, filled with
florets of spring onion, then cooked in a semi-deep
fry and semi-stewed method. When the pork chop is cut
open, the fragrance of spring onions fill the air. The
meat has an excellent texture, too.
