On a Saturday afternoon, Ben brought the family to Szechuan Delicious Restaurant on No. 3 Road for lunch. He used the excuse that the lunch was for mum to shut out Arkensen’s protest.
First, an appetizer of Saliva Chicken. The serving looked big for $7.95.
Actually, the bottom of the bowl was filled with bean sprout which I do not mind. Ben loves the sauce so much that he asked to pack the leftover home. Any one has a recipe of this sauce to share?
From the chef recommendation list, Slice Lamb with Cumin. I do not quite like this version which is dry and has a powdery texture and the accompaniment of lots of onions, sweet peppers and celery. I would prefer it to be cooked with green onions. This is $12.95.
Also from the chef recommendation list, double cooked pork belly. Again, this has tofu and lots of onions and green peppers. This dish is $10.95.
The last item is Ma-Po Tofu. This was alright with the right moistness; not too wet or dry. This is $8.95.
Szechuan Delicious Restaurant accepts cash only.

Here is the recipe for saliva chicken, if you want to make it at home:
Thank you for the recipe, Lincoln.
I just had to google “saliva chicken”. No, the chef does not spit in the dish – what a relief LOL ! Funny that they use this English translation as I’m sure that it’s raised more than a few eyebrows.
@Steve: it’s such a hilarious translation quite universal all over, yet it’s amusing how it’s never been rectified, esp. early on. I guess a better way of calling it is “Mouthwatering Chicken”. Unless the dish is a “chicken roasted on a ‘spit'” 😉
Chicken looks delicious and flavourful. I read the recipe…ah, one needs a good chicken for this when cold poached.
