San Tung and Peasant Pies

We’ve been craving San Tung dried fried chicken since we’ve been back. The sauce is sweet and spicy and the chicken is cooked extra crispy. They also use the sauce to make dried fried green beans with preserved vegetables. These are my two favorite dishes. San Tung was closed on Wednesday when we tried to go there so we decided to treat Ron’s family to the delicious chicken.

They were peeling the green beans while we waited for our take-out. It was a huge mound.

We ordered four portions of the dried fried chicken wings, with sauce on the side so the skin doesn’t get soggy.

The only problem with take home sauce is that not all the sugar quite incorporates so it’s a bit sandy.

Next to San Tung is a place called Peasant Pies. They have savory pies and sweet ones. I opted for a sweet one, the blueberry pear pie. It wasn’t very sweet which let the flavors of the fruits shine through. The staff recommended the savory over the sweet so I’m looking forward to tasting those in the future.
