Author Notes: Hands down this is my ultimate comfort food. Served all day on the streets, though eaten mostly during breakfast and all throughout daytime. This one meal dish is stir-fried quickly and gobbled down even quicker. Pork, chilies, a few sauces thrown in, finishing with a big generous handful of thai basil, and topping off with a fried egg and a splash of fish chili sauce onto the rice. (Making it at home, I like to put the additional red/yellow bell pepper for color and nutrition) - FrancesRenHuang
