Strike (Aberdeen Centre): Black Pepper Pork
In bowling terms, a strike is an indication that the bowler has knocked down all of the pins with their first ball of a frame. When we’re talking about food, Strike is a popular Taiwanese chain that has a location in the Aberdeen food court.
Back in September, we found ourselves in Richmond and decided to try the newish Strike location by ordering the Black Pepper Pork Rice ($9.75) with a cold lemon tea (for an additional $1). The dish also came with a simple soup with seaweed.
They weren’t kidding when they called this black pepper pork… this dish was very peppery… I honestly think it was too peppery for my tastes. I also found that the garlic sauce was very garlicky… I guess they’ve never heard of being subtle.
The bone-in pork was not cut all the way through meaning that I had to cut the pork myself (which most people will agree is kind of difficult using a plastic fork and knife). The dish was very filling and I did like the yolk porn but I felt like the flavours were too overwhelming.
