My eyes glaze over when I'm confronted with the range of undistinguished brands at the lop cheong counter at the Chinese market. Now I know which one to buy.
I'm visiting my parents for the weekend and helped my mom make sticky rice with lop cheong tonight. She said Wycen Foods Ltd. (San Leandro, CA) brand is the best. They've got SF stores on Washington St. and another on Clement, plus grocery store distribution.
We used the chicken lop cheong tonight, a first for me. Really good flavor and very lean, in fact we needed to add some duck fat to the rice to round out the flavor. The pork with duck liver type are very good too.
