Chinese roast chicken stuffed with sticky rice?

I enjoyed this dish at Amazing 66. I think it was called House Special Crispy Chicken Stuffed with Sticky Rice. There was some chopped Chinese sausage in the stuffing too.

Do any other restaurants serve it?

    It would not surprise me if Sing Kee had the same dish, since it appears they were opened by some Amazing 66 alumni (defectors?) and kept the identical menu. Might need to be ordered in advance, like at A66, as well.

    I'm pretty sure I've seen it on other Cantonese menus, though menupages isn't really always up to date when I go to check - maybe Ping's? I usually stick to seafood there, so I can't remember if I've seen it.

    Or, you could go to Congee Village, order the House Special Crispy Chicken.... and the Rice baked w/ Chinese Sausage... and just put them together at your table.

      Congee Village's House Special Crispy Chicken is more like a roast chicken served with sliced garlic and chicken juices. It is supremely delicious but quite different from the deep fried, battered version at Amazing 66.

      I'll check Sing Kee and Ping's though. Thanks for the tip.

          I've actually never had the HSCC at Congee Village - really, though, I was just joking about that.

          I've had the crispy chicken at A66, but we did the shrimp & almond version. Was pretty dang good, though I was surprised to find there wasn't really any chicken in it besides the skin.

            I didn't realize there was a shrimp and almond version. I'll have to go back and try it.
