New Taiwanese Restaurant Serves Sausage Inside Another Sausage!
- Liang's Kitchen's Lines Don't Lie
- Chef Kitchen, Some Type of Chinese Restaurant, To Open In Irvine
- Nice Time Deli in Irvine Closing. Serving Its Last Lunch Saturday April 30.
But a friend had even better news. He said that the big
poster they've plastered on the window advertises that they specialize on Taiwanese
night market snacks, but particularly the infamous "sausage in a sausage."
won't bore you with the Chinese characters here, because there's really no
ambiguity when you describe something as "sausage in a sausage." And according to my buddy, it's as literal as they come: a large rice-filled sausage is split
open like a hot dog bun to receive a thinner pork sausage, the whole thing served with
pickles and eaten with your hands. (There's a bad joke in here somewhere that I'm purposely avoiding.)
The picture below was taken by my Taiwanese compadre on his last trip to Taiwan. How will Chef Kitchen's version measure up? Stay tuned.
