you know how much i like century eggs right? so i had to order this as an appetizer before we had the peking duck. these were immersed in some soy-vinegar sauce with minced ginger. i’m not a fan of ginger (except in tinola), but this combo worked really well. it’s funny but i always have to order some century egg everytime i’m in a chinese resto, whether upscale or low-end. in fact, the counter lady in “goto king” (and before in “chowking” until they stopped offering century eggs) always knows i’ll order this with my goto. (ain’t it weird the food servers in the mall know me by face? ha.ha.). and it’s always better with some seaweeds.
well, if you really wanted to see the rice crepes that we rolled the peking duck in, here they are. we didn’t get to finish them (they were good) because we zeroed in on the rice. it’s weird because in our three days there we only ate rice once (and on the last day at that). we ate mostly noodles and bread.
this had loads of msg in it. my friend got hit hard in the head with the woozy feeling after we ate this. one taste of how “flavorful” this was and you knew it had msg. ha.ha. either that, or they used duck fat to fry this in. 🙂
