San Jose (or close by) jook joint?

Luthien | Sep 7, 2007 02:09 PM

My board search skills fail me. Can anyone recommend places to get jook in the south bay? I can get your standard fare at dim sum, but I'm looking for a place where I can specifically order duck and preserved egg (since I highly doubt my skills at handling lime to preserve the eggs). I've heard it referred to as congee as well and it is probably on the Chinese menu of some nearby restaurants where my character translation skills fail. There was a place I went to in some Wolfe road mall that had many choices, but the jook itself was tasteless (I like mine made with meat broth and this tasted like just water).

[edit] per kc72's explanation, I'm looking for Cantonese-style jook.
