On my way to Dragon Phoenix Palace to meet up with the other OC food bloggers, I passed Lien Hoa Chinese BBQ Food To-Go. Which, of course, reminded me that I had an old photo from last month just sitting around and haven't posted it yet.
I go to Lien Hoa for their $1.50 quails. They're the poor pathetic little birds on the top of this photo. Quail is a dark meat bird, sort of like a really, really tiny duck, but a little drier. Half a roast duck was $6.99 if I remember correctly. The duck was only OK. By the time I got home an hour later, the skin wasn't crispy anymore. :(
They've got roast pig, char siu (Chinese barbecued pork), and other assorted barbecued meats. But I really go for the little quails.
Also, since Little Saigon was still celebrating the Lunar New Year, there was a dragon dance in front of the store. I've never seen a string of firecrackers that started on the roof and went all the way to the ground before.
Traffic started moving again so I barely managed to snap this photo of the dragon dancers. They're the red and black blur in the far right corner of the picture.
