Dae Ji Pork Cutlet House, Vancouver (Canada) by Bureaucrat

Ingrained (ha!) in me is a need to eat rice.  Give me a big bowl of fluffy, aromatic rice and I'm a happy camper.  By this point, we had been in Canada for over a week and I was seriously feeling the need to have some rice for dinner.  

I had found a Chinese eatery with a high score on Urbanspoon in Downtown Vancouver.  However, we couldn't find it but instead we found a Korean restaurant, Dae Ji Pork Cutlet House.  It's a cheap and cheerful sort of place - nothing too flash on the inside, what with the small tables and slightly poky set-up; and while the place isn't grotty it could do with a bit of a spruce up.

Feeling greedy, I got the Daei Ji pork cutlet (CAD$8.99).  Two pieces of crumbed pork, smothered in gravy, served with rice, corn niblets, picked veg and salad. Simple and hearty, it hit the spot.  The pork was tender and the batter was thin and crunchy.

The pork and rice came with a bowl of miso soup, which was a tad too salty for my liking.

The Lawyer, also missing his rice intake, got the chicken cutlet curry on rice (CAD$7.99).  It also came with miso soup, and he also ordered a fried egg (CAD$1) and got an extra serve of rice too (CAD$1.50).

Verdict: we liked it a lot.

Really great value here.  The food is simple but it's good and homestyle in nature.  The place seems popular with Koreans, students and office workers.  Service is friendly.
