Hunan Bacon

BIM | Apr 17, 200803:05 PM

Does anyone out there remember Henry Chung's original restaurant on Kearny in Chinatown - late 70's I guess...and on the menu they had this dish called simply, I think, Hunan bacon. It consisted of domino-sized chunks of bacon which had been boiled, fried and steamed to a melty, fatty delectablility. Was definitely some star anise and maybe scallion? I remember that when you ordered it the waitress tried to talk you out of it - "You no like."

Is there anywhere around that does that style dish? Think of it as a kind of nostalgia/cholesterol trip.
