New Heong Kee is famous for one thing - their signature beggar's chicken. This could be the world’s most tedious way to serve chicken. First, you pre-order a day in advance. Then, a whole chicken is stuffed with Chinese medicinal herbs, wrapped in layers of (hopefully heatproof) plastic, encased in clay and then buried in a pit of burning charcoal. Eight hours later, it’s shovelled out of the pit into a wheelbarrow where the waiter breaks the smouldering clay with a hammer and wallah! Your fragrant, meat-so-tender-it-falls-off-the-bone Beggar’s Chicken. By the way, the restaurant’s been around for 40 odd years.
