Chinese dish traditionally made for woman who have just given birth. Made with hard boiled eggs, pig trotters, allspice, ginger brewed in black vinegar.
A friend bought it at T&T, but I could not find it. Any thoughts?

thank-you

    Some dim sum restos serve a small portion of it. What area of town are you looking for, if you can't get to any T&T?

      Richmond Court at Times Square used to have it. Call to check!

        I live downtown. Didn't do a thorough search of Chinatown just Goldstone and a few other restos on Spadina as well as the T&T on Cherry. Sigh no luck.

          My mom says the Sky Dragon restaurant serves it as dim sum and you should be able to ask for a take-out order.

          I agree...I saw it at dim sum at Ruby in Scarborough just this past Friday.

            I also usually see it there. Other places to check would be Sam Woo up at Bamburgh Circle. I know I had it there a while back (I wouldn't recommend their food though, however). I usually see it at T&T. Strange that they did not carry it.

          hey! just curious..... is your profile/nickname/handle based on musetto (sp?) which is some pig snout sausage? i found a reference to batali and such a sausage and have been trying to futilely look for a recipe. if you know what i'm talking about or anyone does could you please post a recipe on the home cooking board and give me a heads up somehow? thanks!!!!

            hi PSP, musetto indeed is the inspiration, the correct spelling was taken. I had my first tasty bite in Sudbury where there is a large Northern Italian population, A guy named Nico who has been making musetto for more than 50 yrs sells it out of his house. I have tasted different ones in restaurants in Turin and Venice in all of them I taste subtle hits of cinnamon and nutmeg, not sure of the recipe but I can ask Nico next time I am up Sudbury.

            Just in case anyone has the craving for this. A friend picked this up for me at "Ah Fong Foods" All sorts of hard to find Chinese comfort food made from scratch then flash frozen. One more craving to cross off the list.

            Thanks for all the suggestions.
