You know I went to this place next to parker that has some type of salty chicken, or hainanse chicken that was pretty good.

I think it was called choi house salty chicken.

was pretty good.

Maybe it was hawkers? I used to love their hainanese chicken there with their ginger chili sauce until they changed ownership. Doesn't taste the same, but I also haven't been back for a long time. Maybe someone here wants to give it a go.

Probably not but I would probably expect them to be busier than usual especially BBQ Meat places so if you don't inquire about pre ordering, go earlier.

jinxcrusader - yes, Mui Garden is/was also famous for their H Chicken but Mui Garden is a thing of the past. When they were at their peak there wasn't as many places around, a fair bit but not like now. I recently went to the Richmond one which is the first time I've been to any Mui Garden since my Teens (I'm 33 now) and you can tell a place has gone fucking down hill when the Awards for Best this and that on their walls are from over 10 years ago lol. To me that always signals "used to be good but not anymore". Needless to say, my meal sucked hard, had the "go to" items and I could have gotten better going practically anywhere else. I'm sure some of the other locations might be better i.e. Main but either way that was the last time I'm eating there ever.

this place use to be good a few years ago when they actually cut slices off the chicken. afterwards, they started cheaping out by shredding the chicken, giving you less meat and increasing the price by a dollar or 2. its still a decent choice but not as worth it as before.

I remember Mui Garden! When I lived Downtown, I used to order from them alot. Those guys who worked there and did deliveries, use to drive real nice cars, and were at the races back in the day too. Why did Mui Garden go out of business? Not only they had nice hainanese chicken, but they also had a nice roti and curry sauce too!!!

Is this their niche or was I just unlucky?

oh that HK bbq master place under superstore reminded me of one of my experiences

i went in asked for 1 LB of BBQ pork and half BBQ duck. i heard the guy started chopping the BBQ pork and while i was paying, i heard the cashier YELL at the butcher DONT CHOP IT! im like wtf? didnt think much of it cus i thought she was talking about another order

went home, opened the food and found half my BBQ pork not chopped...



then i found this new place, Kowloon BBQ or something, same plaza as the return it depot on westminster hwy. the butcher claims he uses pork jowl meat for his BBQ pork, and yes indeed its fking soft n juicy, unlike other places where its dry and hard like cardboard. it is a somewhat hit and miss tho, sometimes the BBQ pork is really good, sometimes just soso, but still better than HK BBQ MASTER

You can ask for free-range chicken at Prata-man, $8 more for a whole chicken. Wasn't bad.

"Do you want vegetables with that? What about soup?" = tricky language. Okay

Kinda off topic but i went to hawkers delight on main king ed about 2 weeks ago (my first time) and although it was busy...it was by far the worst hainanese chicken experience I've had. I don't know if it was an off day (cause I've heard good things) but the chicken had this freezer burn taste. Plus to make matters worse, they don't have the ginger-green onion oil AND the red chili sauce looked like barf. Worst...ever.

Had the Hainanese chicken @ Cafe D'lite today. Pretty damn good.

Anyone know how much more is the the "extra large/extra portion" in terms cost + quantity you get? Will it be around 1/4 bird?

My Dad always told me to go to Wing Hing on Victoria Drive when we were living in the area, so that's where we went. Not sure if it was due to quality or distance (perhaps both), but I took his word for it since he's been in the business his whole life. Now that I'm in Burnaby, I go to Chong Li.

As for goose, it's legal to eat them. It's just the economics. Duck is a lot more affordable in comparison so that's what they make/sell. I'm sure if you go to a store and request for a special order, they'd do it.

Had Chinese BBQ Goose many times. The local gooses are too lean and the meat texture and flavor isn't as good as a duck. I'd take duck over goose any day. Goose in HK/China on the other hand..
