Excellent Pork Chop House was a revelation. The food is so homey, so satisfying, that when my job transferred far from downtown Manhattan I found myself almost weeping for the loss of easy access to Excellent's unique version of pork lo mein. The spare rib soup that comes with it is a stand alone favorite too. Served piping hot, in a little ovenproof pot complete with bones. Ahhh....

The pork chop is marinated lightly with some sort of chinese spice (I suspect it is star annis, but not sure) The pickled vegitable adds sour flavor. All these ingredients create a very good and unique harmony. I have ordered it three times and the taste is consistent. Pork is tender.

Two of us for lunch. I had pork chop (3 small ones) on rice ($5.25) Not at all what I expected. Not fried. If it were, all breading fell off. It was over rice with cabbage and pickled veggies. Everything was fresh, but only OK. Friend had chicken leg fried; was good but only 2 small ones over rice ($5.25). Restaurant was larger than expected and tables placed comfortably apart. Clean for Chinatown and bathroom decent as well. The signature dish for which a restaurant is named cannot be merely OK. (one reviewer said Flushing was better and it is, but that this was good for C-Town.

a while ago I read a reveiew about this place, and finally got around to trying it...I have been there a few times, since...excellent!...real, basic food, no nonsense, nice 'n' clean, and low-priced...this may become my mainstay Chinatown restaurant...love that marinated seaweed and dried bean curd appetizer...

This place serves incredible pork chops for almost nothing! And besides these super delish pork chops, i love their boiled soups with veggie rice and Taiwanese-styled shaved ice. Just remember it's closed on Tuesday :)

This Place is a great place for Taiwanese style food, the poor chop is very good and super cheap. only thing is the soup is too salty all the time .. but other than that everything else is great here.

Really good pork chop over rice dish and other small dishes. Place is clean, service is efficient and polite, food is good - value can't be beat. They also have Taiwanese shaved ice. Highly recommend if you want a fast, inexpensive meal in Chinatown!
