wuzhou paper wrapped chicken?
In reading a guidebook on Guangxi, it says that in the city of Wuzhou, they make a very delicious paper wrapped chicken. Alas, what they don't say is what it is called in Chinese. Any thoughts? Characters appreciated................
纸包鸡 zhi3bao1ji1, it literally means paper wrapped chicken.
My first guess was beggar's chicken 叫花鸡 jiao4hua1ji1、 which is found all over China. But that is wrapped first in a lotus leaf, then paper, then mud.
How do guidebooks like this get published? "Go to China! Go to.....a place. And eat.... stuff."
Thank you- I will take both bits of information and see what I get. I will be sure to report back when we return in mid-July. --I thought of beggar's chicken but didn't really know how to write/say that either.
Can't completely fault the book, I'm afraid---its actually a book on Guangxi province written in English and published in China. I think the operating thought is "those silly western tourists won't eat anything but mc donald's anyway so why waste space?"
