I just moved back from college after moving away for along time. And i was craving some of that good Chinese preserved meats. I hadn't had it for years and years. So i went to that famous old green store on grant street and bought their Chinese side pork and their salted duck. Bought some baby bok choi, Put it in a clay pot with rice and needless to boyfriend LOVED it. Just wanted to share the secret.

    I get my preserved sausages and stuff from Wycen on Washington up from Stockton instead. I feel they're not as salty.

      Really? I don't like eating too salty either. But i tried Wycens, i didn't like it. it tasted very bland. I like the ones from Mow Lee they have a selection of two types of duck legs, one that's traditional and one that is not as salted. I know because I LOVE it.
