After the empress ate the dish, she felt its flavor unusually delicious which much resembled the flavors of bird's nest. She praised the dish profusely and bestowed the name “the delicacy of bird's nests ". And then the cooking method became known among the low society. And with the passage of time, it is named" the delicacy of bird's nests of Luoyang ",and still named so even today.
