    1. Hi Hody
      Thanks for your comments on my blog.
      Your pork chop look so delicious. I have searched for this Japanese pork chops for some time too. I'm going to bookmark this to make it.

  3. Your pork chop looks really easy to prepare!
    And I didn't know that the chicken floss can actually be made at home! I always thought that those floss need to go through some kind of special machine to have that kind of results.

    Thanks for sharing!
