an elusive foodhoe sighting…

by foodhoe on July 12, 2010

Ahhh, remember the Lobster Jook at Hing Lung Restaurant in San Francisco?

A few months back I wrote about introducing a tv crew to the joys of eating jook for an upcoming PBS show called Breakfast Special. Read all about it here, or better yet, you can watch it this Wednesday, July 14th at 8 pm on most local PBS stations, click here for the SF/Bay Area schedule.  OMG it’s my 15 seconds of fame…

Drat! I wished I read this a couple hours earlier. Oh well. I’ll have to hopefully catch it on a repeat.

Foodhoe, I thought it was interesting how they cut away just as you were about to eat the 1,000 year old egg. So spill it, did you really like it or did you make a face!? 😛 I actually like that jook too, it’s a classic! I love how they shot you getting all excited taking picture of the lobster jook! 🙂


foodhoe July 17, 2010 at 8:45 pm

Single guy, I have found peace with those onyx black and jade green eggs, and that was probably the best one I ever had! The jook and the fried bread was amazing, and we enjoyed superb service on that particular day. And yeah, I admit that I did get pretty excited about that lobster

I finally watched the show on my dvr. Funny thing is that I’d eaten there right before your original review, but didn’t try the jook! Great seeing you.
