More from Crystal Jade La Mian Xiao Long Bao

Saliva Chicken

Here's just a couple quick pics from Crystal Jade La Mian Xiao Long Bao: the scallion oil noodles and the "saliva chicken" (what the heck is the official name that they use here?).

Scallion Oil NoodlesThey may have looked promising at first glance, but perhaps not surprisingly, both of these had a tinge of sweetness to them that I didn't particularly care too much for. Well, I suppose that they did make the dishes look presentable at least.

Saliva chicken? What is that....?

disagree with you. the scallion oil mee is simply the best you can find.
never tried the saliva chicken before though.

Maybe a more flattering translation of saliva chicken is "mouth watering" chicken (Kou Shui Ji)!

Xi Yan (www.xiyan.com.hk) along Craig Road does a nice rendition of the Kou Shui Ji, though they do not serve it every time.
