Yummy! Great taste with premium price. The serving is not too small and not too big.    Just enough.

The process of baking the Beggar’s Chicken

Beggar Chicken originates from Changsu, Jiangsu Province in China. It’s a dish of whole chicken with herbs, wrapped in clay and baked slow for hours in hot fired up mud. The name of the dish relates to how a beggar once stole a chicken and hid the wrapped chook in mud, only to later cook it. The mud forms a crust around the chicken and cook the chicken till it was tender and aromatic.

Unlike the Banting one, Ijok New Beggar’s Delicious Restaurant serves up a long list of other seafood and dishes besides their signature Beggar’s Chicken.

Price was decent too and the restaurant is spacious and cool. Do call for reservation to avoid disappointment.

With the whole glutton gang had us taking a day trip to Ijok to try out the much raved Ijok New Beggar’s Delicious Restaurant.
