I went to Nan Xiang Xiao Long Bao on Saturday, and on a whim deided to try the spicy beef tendon. If you've never had this before, and the thought of eating beef tendon is a turn off, have no fear!
The tendon comes in wafer thin transluscent slices and has the texture of al dente pasta. It is flavored in a szechuan hot pepper oil/pepprcorn sauce and I have to say, it's quite addicting.
On a nutritional note, my research shows that it is fairly low in calories (about 150 for a 3 oz serving), has virtually no fat, and is nearly 100% protein.
