Ma Li Ya Virgin Chicken: Heavenly Soy Sauce Chicken!

Soy Sauce Chicken $32 each (2.5kg chicken) Think about it. If you told someone who hasn’t tasted chicken rice before that you’re going to bring him to eat a dish of boiled chicken, he’d probably tell you that he has to go see a man about a dog. I think in general, most people would […]
