Where to get good Cantonese-style braised dry/preserved abalone?

vincentlo | Nov 11, 2012 07:08 AM

I've been wanting to have some good Cantonese-style braised (usually in oyster sauce) dry/preserved abalone, something I haven't had for like a decade. There are the usual (very few) candidates: Koi Palace in Daly City, and the list of Cantonese restaurants in Millbrae (Hong Kong Flower Lounge, The Kitchen, Zen Peninsula). Most of these places charge $100-150 for their best Yoshihama abalone from Japan, at the dry weight of about 1 ounce for each whole abalone. Does anyone have recommendations? I can't find any reviews on this topic online, and at these prices, surely don't want to be a guinea pig. ;-)
