I recently cooked a beggar's chicken (an exhausting all-day effort that, fortunately, paid off in a big way) and decided I wanted to eat one prepared in a restaurant. Tried the dish at Shanghai 1930 a few nights ago -- very rich, delicious, though encased in bread dough, not clay. I was wondering if there are other SF restaurants that serve beggar's chicken.

It's on the dinner menu at Shanghai 1930. $38, must be ordered 24 hours in advance.
The menu also includes Buddha Jumps Over the Wall, "braised sun-dried abalone, superior whole shark's fin, preserved scallops, oysters, and black skin chicken, slow-steamed in lotus leaves with superior double-boiled broth in an earthen wine jug," $88 per person, two person minimum, must be ordered 72 hours in advance.
