The search for the ‘Killer’ pork chops brings us to Anna’a Place in El Cerrito California. This café serves an eclectic mix of Korean, American diner style food. It was recommended by several friends and it was time to give it a try. It is located in a small strip mall surrounded by senior housing with in walking distance of the Bart station. We did not take Bart because Ms. Goofy said something about blowing the carbon out of the exhaust of the Racing Honda. A quick ‘white knuckle’ jaunt down the track (freeway) and we were there.
The menu is huge with standard American breakfast and lunch fair. There are a lot of Korean and fusion style dishes too. We were there for the pork chops, so ‘Be Bim Bap’ will have to wait for another day. I did ask for hot sauce, The waitress brought us a sauce which she called a Chinese hot sauce. We were some of the first customers of the morning and our service was prompt and fast. The dishes arrived almost as fast as our speedy arrival. The dishes looked large and scrumptious.
The pork chops were juicy, tender and satisfying. Home fries & eggs that accompanied were smothered in the zesty Chinese hot sauce. The hot sauce was home made with a fresh pepper bite. We were happy and full. Anna’s Place serves a very decent breakfast. The journey for pork chops will continue but we will return to Anna’s Place to try the ‘Be Bim Bap’ (I still am not sure what this is but is sounds fun).
