Looking for san bei ji (3-Cup Chicken)

Andrew Copeland Aug 5, 2005 07:23 PM

Is there anywhere in the city that serves a good version of San Bei Ji? I've been looking for a good version, but have been unable to find one. Anyone have any ideas?

    Since you didn't get any replies, I'll kick in the one place I can recommend for this dish. It's not in the City though. If you find yourself in Walnut Creek, try the san bei ji at Dragon 2000. It might not be on the English language menu, but just ask for it.

      Taiwan Restaurant did a good version in the past. It's also available at Jiu Qing Mian Mian, aka Taste of Formosa. 2428 Clement Street, San Francisco.

            Joy definitely has it, and I enjoyed it, but can't speak to its authenticity, despite my Taiwanese extraction.

            The version at Chef Chu's all the way south in Los Altos is actually very authentic, tho unfortunately on the sweet side.
