Something You Should Eat: Brisket Crepe

February 9, 2010

In honor of the Chinese New Year this week, I'm spending some extra time there, scouring out the greatest dishes. As much as I love the mapo tofu from Double Li and the welcoming hot pots at Lao Szechuan and the "Toronto" fried rice at Phoenix, I've recently been enjoying the dim sum service at Triple Crown (still nothing near the experience at Shui Wah, but that's another story). One of the items I had off of the menu recently was something they call the "brisket crepe." It's essentially slowly-braised brisket, jammed with all sorts of wonderful spices like star anise and five-spice, then slowly-cooked in a clay pot with a slightly thick rice flour crepe. The sauce alone is worth devouring - maybe over rice the next day.

As much as I think the dim sum is worth checking out at Triple Crown, the brisket crepe is absolutely something you should eat. Video after the jump:
