Sichuan chicken (hau sui gae) @ 嚐點

Tried the sichuan chicken (hau sui gae) which I do not know the English name for but I cant make up a name for it because it will sound ridiculous because it would be called saliva chicken!!

The display they have on the table does not look good but I decided to try it anyway.

The chicken comes with brown rice which I find quite heavy because the sauce for the chicken is quite heavy.

As usual the portion of rice is big!!
The picture shows a chicken leg, but I have tried both the chicken leg and breast, however the chicken is really tough in both cases, so the chicken must be old or it is a free-range chicken.
If the chicken could be slightly more tender and served with plain rice it would have been perfect because the sauce was delicious.

There was lots of sichuan peppercorns in the sauce which gives you the same tingling sensation mint does.
As well as that there was lots of spring onions, crushed peanuts and beanshoots.
The sauce was really rich because there was lots of sesame paste sauce which was really sweet and it balanced the spicyness of the sichuan peppercorns.
