Do you know pork chop bun is one of the most famous snack in Macau? It has another name called 'piggy bun' hahaha No fanciful dressing in this sandwich, just a large slab of golden succulent pan fried pork chop in between the crispy soft bread roll with some simple sauté onions. Yes is just that simple but the taste is so so awesome! Thinking of it now am still salivating over it hahaha…..
