Even Better Than The Main Course: Gold Mine's Chilli Oil
I'm a big fan of Gold Mine. Like many devotees, I love its Cantonese BBQ, which I often order to take-away. And when doing so, I always make sure that a little sachet of chilli oil (辣椒油 lajiaoyou) is popped into the carrier bag. Because, in all honesty, I think I love Gold Mine's chilli oil more than I do its food!
And on this riff, can you think of any other restaurants where the supporting act upstages the supposed signature dish?
