Crispy Roast Chicken H.K. Style
If there's something hubby and I both enjoy (we of infamously different tastebuds), it's a good Cantonese style crispy roast chicken. This one above is from Shang Palace - S$24 for half bird, and what a plump, meaty one it is. Nicely moist and just very lightly seasoned. The dipping salt is curry coloured and speckled with all kinds of herbs and spices. A hint of the woodsy. I think I still prefer the chicken with the savoury taucheo-chili sauce, which is really good here.
I hear Crystal Jade Palace at Ngee Ann City also does a good version of the crispy roast chicken. Yet to try that. Anyone have a favourite place for this dish?
