So too much sugar is bad for you. We know this. I mean, we can definitely feel the sugar crash coming on when we haven’t had enough sugar, right? The high before the fall? And that’s when you need something to cut it, to make yourself feel better. Something like…
After Simon, Christine and myself all but staggered out of Passion Tree with a self-induced sugar coma, we wandered into the deserted District Dining area (you know, where Tim Ho Wan is?) and saw, lit like the gods themselves were pushing us to eat it, Cheers Cut chicken.
Hot Star-sized chicken is crumbed and fried, Taiwanese style, and you get to choose a sauce or a dusting of flavour. We did chilli, as it would have left the chicken more crispy than if it was drowned in sauce. Not that there’s anything wrong with that.
And because we didn’t want the chicken to get lonely, we also got a Fried Giant Squid. Which wasn’t too large to the other squids, I guess, but a bit large to the chicken.
The chicken wasn’t quite as moreish as I was hoping it would be, but I did love the plum seasoning on the squid, whinch had the tender on the inside and crispy on the outside thing going for it.
And you know what, it DID end up cutting the sugar, which was all we wanted from it.
