"Sour pork." 酢豚。

Fried pieces of pork mixed with onions, carrots, bell peppers, and sometimes bamboo shoots and pine apple, seasoned with a thick sauce based on rice vinegar and soy sauce. The sauce is amber colored.

Staple dish of the Japanese Chinese (Chuka) kitchen. Although it looks like "sweet and sour pork," the sauce and therefore the taste is different in Japan.
