For a taste of classic Hainanese pork cutlet, order the Chapter 2 1980’s Hainanese Pork Cutlet coated with Potato Chips Crumbs ($18.80+). This hearty dish features a whole boneless pork cutlet covered with crushed potato chips and breadcrumbs, and then deep-fried to crisp perfection.

Sweet and crunchy green mango, guava, green apple, turnip, pineapple, and Japanese cucumber form the base of this fusion side. It’s then topped with ice plant for a refreshing bite, and savoury cod fish strips instead of the traditional you tiao.
