Looking for Chicken Stuffed with Sticky Rice

Need recommendation for boneless stuff chicken with sticky rice. I know Koi Palace and R&G lounge has it, but anywhere else? I'm looking to order one that's not going to break bank for the Lunar New Year.

SF or East Bay would be great. Thanks ahead.

  1. Kirin on Geary and Great Eastern in SF Chinatown make the dish with 24 hrs notice and I like both versions. Neither is as elaborate as R&G's but they also cost less too.

    Don't know where to send you in the East Bay, but I'd call East Ocean Seafood in Alameda. An alternative might be the beggars chicken at Lily's House in Lafayette.

      East Ocean says they'll do one for $40. From your experiences there, would you trust their version?

        The dimsum and dinners are good, but the stuffed chicken was not their forte...

        Thanks Melanie& Cynsa, I saw the posts as well. I will give them a call to see if they still makes it. I know Full Moon in Oakland Fruitvale district makes it and it's darn cheap too. $28 for the whole chicken, but the rice can be a little mushy.

          Try the place around the corner from Full Moon also -- Ly Luck

            Thanks for the pointer. Just to clarify, that neighborhood is the Dimond District (even though it's bisected by Fruitvale).

              Thanks KC didn't know Ly Luck made it. I'll give them a call to find out.

                fyi - I haven't tried it there yet, just recall someone mentioning it in a yelp review.

        2. Golden Grain Restaurant in Albany (East Bay) but requires advance notice.

          1. Call Yum's Bistro in Fremont and see if they can special order it for you.
