I bet this posting will put some people off. :-) But who cares .. what I am blogging here is a delicacy to people in China. I am adventurous when it comes to food. I’ll try anything … well, almost anything.
We chanced upon this place in the Empire Centre, the strip mall along No 3 Rd where Hon’s is.
Parking is always a challenge at this strip mall. Many people comes here to either go for their meals at Hon’s or do their chinese grocery shopping at the Empire Supermarket.
Lai Leung Kee Delicatessen is located in food court in the mall across from Hon’s. It is a very little known food court. This shop sells really exotic chinese food and for a very low price.
I tried what they called the Stewed Beef Organ Meat which is served with a bowl of rice. The meat is boiled in a claypot.
So, what do we have there? Oh, I don’t really recall. Well, I know there is some pieces of LUNGS! That was the worse tasting piece of meat I have ever tasted … the texture is horrible. However, the other organs was not too bad. Well, I just did not bother to know what the organs were. It is better that way, don’t you think? The soup was hot and flavourful.
The claypot also had mung bean noodles (vermicelli) and lettuce.
All this is just for $6.00. I think it’s really cheap. It is really good but I advise that you ask them not to put in the lungs (yucks, again).
We also tried the Tai Sze Snake Soup. It is really made of snake, believe it or not. The pictures I took of this soup did not come out good. A small serving cost $3.50.
