I thought I'd jot down my two most recent and treasured chicken finds (since I'm a huge fan of that lovely fowl)

1) Hainan Chicken Rice for $6.50 @ ABC Bakery in Chinatown. I wish I discovered this years ago. For the price you get delicious flavoured rice, a quarter free-range (yellow fur) chicken, and soup. Its so good I ate it twice in two nights. The Wonton Noodle soup is miserable (okay not quite that bad but I exaggerate) but the Hainan Chicken Rice is fantastic .... not as good as that you can find in Singapore or HK, but pretty damn good considering it doesn't involve an airplane ride.

2) Salt Water Chicken (Yeem-Shui Cantonese) (Yen-Swei Mandarin) @ Porridge King @ the Ranch 99 Mall in Daly City. I adore this. This is my favorite chicken in the entire Bay Area. Poached ever so delicately, served at room temperature with a slightly gelatinous texture, and with that ginger/scallion sauce. I adore this chicken. I ate it every Thursday night for the past 12 weeks in a row at 9:30 pm, I love it so much. So tender. Its not free range chicken, but its so delicious; and ever so slightly pink @ the bone.

Thought I'd share these two secrets....
