When you head to a Zi Char restaurant in Singapore, the Cantonese dish of Sweet and Sour Pork aka “Go Lo Yok 咕嚕肉 is always one of the most frequently ordered.
So I went around many Chinese restaurants and Zi Char places particularly known for this dish and picked out the most note-worthy ones.
There are more Chinese restaurants listed here, only because those I had in the Zhi Char stalls were good, but didn’t have a strong differentiating factor. Let me know if there are any more which are out of this world.

I had quite a number of Sweet and Sour Pork dishes before, but 1-Michelin Star Jiang-Nan Chun’s rendition has a edge over the rest.
Chef Tim Lam’s Sweet and Sour Pork with Pineapple ($28) uses succulent Iberico pork cubes, fried with a tangy sauce, and topped with homemade candied ginger for a hint of spice.
When you take a bite of the bite, you would note that there is this extra thin crispy layer on the outside, enveloping juicy meat within.
