Ton Kiang’s steamed bacon with dried mustard greens is the best version of this Hunan dish Robert Lauriston has found. The waiter even muttered “good dish” when augustiner ordered it, which is always a good sign. The sauce is haunting, continues augustiner, especially when mixed with the rice.
In the East Bay, Robert Lauriston says your best bet is Great China, while lexdevil reports there’s also a “rock solid” rendition of the dish available at Daimo.
