A week or 2 ago I heard about & saw pictures of a dish that was new to me: Salt & Pepper Oxtail. The pictures I saw looked so good & the descriptions I read just about drove me crazy! The more I thought about it, the crazier I got.. I even had a dream about them! Sheesh...
Couldn't arrange to go try them until today when 5 of us decided to brave the Chinese New Year shoppers to have lunch at Tai Wu/Mr Fong BBQ Noodle House King Plaza in Daly City. The oxtails were just so good, we had 2 orders! They were tender, flavorful and the S&P batter/coating was perfect. Not greasy, good salt & pepper flavor, just yummy.
We also shared a 3-way combo BBQ platter, roast duck, cha siu & soy sauce chicken. Pea shoots w/garlic & a big bowl of Roast Duck Yee Foo Wonton Soup. The BBQ meats were very fresh & juicy - disappeared in a flash! Pea shoots was a huge portion. Duck Yee Foo Wonton soup was very good, I love what frying the wonton before adding them to the soup does for the flavor & texture.
This was a feast for $17/pp incl tax & tip.
I feel my waist expanding even more just thinking about this meal, but I know I will be eating these dishes again, and again!
