Malaysian Beef Jerky + $4 Chinese buffet

  • j
  • 2

I was wondering around Chinatown yesterday, and came across two places that sold 5-6 varieties of Malaysian beef jerky, which looked as if maybe it's cooked after it's dried (anyone???). One was on Pell St., one on Elizabeth, I think. I'm not that familiar with it, or all the various flavors, so I was wondering about anyone's experience with these. The meat is only sold by weight, so they don't seem too convenient for snacking.

Also, unrelated -- I think i found the $4 buffet place that was mentioned a couple of weeks ago -- 45 division.

  1. the one on elizabeth is new foo key (#95A elizabeth 965-0796), a gary cheong discovery. it's amazing. both gary and I suggest only the plain variety.

    very different from chinese beef jerky...it's served warm, and it's moist.

      over the last three years i've had every type of jerky at the place on elizabeth and there's not one i would not recommend. as for "selling by the pound," all that means is that the shop weighs what they give you and charges accordingly. i've never had a problem getting just one or two pieces - perfect for snacking.
