BBC is the acronym used by Chinese restaurants for the popular vegetable dish 'Broad Beans, Bean Curd and Chinese Chutney'. The acronym probably came about because the name of the dish, which is literally a list of the ingredients of the dish, is such a mouthful. It's an unpretentious dish but taste really delicious. My dad loves the dish so it has become our 'staple' vegetable dish (if the restaurant offers it) when we dine out.
Our favourite BBC so far is that served by Bing's Chinese Restaurant. The broad beans were cooked to perfection and the soft tofu was a good contrast to the firm broad beans. It also had the most amount of sauce out of all the BBC we have tried. The sauce is an important element for the enjoyment of the dish.
Ding Hao's BBC dish is also delicious, although the pieces of tofu were not as large as the BBC served at Bing's Chinese Restaurant or Mongkok. While it did not have as much sauce as the one from Bing's, it was still enough to make the dish not too dry.

Mongkok is another place that offers BBC. While the broad beans were perfectly cooked like the other two restaurants, we thought it was a bit dry as it did not have as much sauce as we had hoped.
Have you tried BBC before? If you have, do let me know which restaurant's BBC is your favourite. I would love to visit that restaurant for a meal because from my experience restaurants that prepare this dish well seem to cook other dishes well too.
