Usually referred to as Com Tam in Vietnam, a word that referred to the broken rice that forms a core part of the dish, Pork Chop with Rice is a popular dish in Vietnamese restaurants in Adelaide. Typically the pork chop is grilled though in Adelaide it is likely that the pork chop is fried instead.

My current favourite is the one served at Thanh Viet Restaurant, which had pork chops that were juicy with a slight hint of lemongrass flavour. The pork chops portion was also generous, which make eating the dish an enjoyable and satisfying experience.

Another place that we enjoyed Pork Chop with Rice was at Pho S.A. Their pork chops had a slight spiced flavour and it is also one of the places that cut up their pork chop to make consuming them an effortless task.

Khang's Noodles along with its Parafield Gardens branch Pho Khang's are the places that we currently know where you can enjoy pork chop cooked in the "traditional" manner. The pork chop was cooked just right with a good amount of "char-grilled" flavour that is a key part to make eating it an enjoyable experience.

The 3 Viets is notable in that their Pork Chop Rice came with a fried egg. Normally it is only seen in bigger versions of the dish which include other ingredients aside from the pork chop.

Other places that we have enjoyed delicious Pork Chop with Rice are Bonsai Cafe, Aumbo Khmer Restaurant and Yen Linh Vietnamese Restaurant.
