*Review is for their togo*
Been coming here to pick up some Char Siu togo whenever I'm in the area. It's about $10 for a pound, which gets me a couple of meals throughout my work week. Haven't tried the restaurant yet, but I certainly love their Char Siu togo. You can ask them to chop them into bite sized pieces for you. Seasoning is perfect and goes super well with just a teensy bit of soy sauce!
After scanning Yelp for places to buy Siu Yuk (crispy roasted pork belly) and Siu Ap (roasted duck), I ended up checking this place out. HK BBQ has a separate dining area on the right side as you walk-in, and a deli counter like Sam Woo in Van Nuys.
Siu Yuk: Pretty good. Compared to most of the other places I've ordered from, the pork belly here was flavorful, tender, and came with crispy skin. Although I found it to be relatively lean, it's certainly better than receiving a box full of fat. They give you hoisin for dipping, too. If I remember correctly, it's $14/lb.
*Note: Keep in mind, if you order by the pound, expect to receive (and pay) more than you want; that's how it is at most Chinese delis. I ordered 2 lbs of Siu Yuk, but basically paid for 3 lbs. Fortunately, they don't rip you off like other places by including the bones; I'm well aware of that trick.
Siu Ap: Pretty good. In terms of taste, it's the most balanced roasted duck I've ordered in Chinatown so far. The meat is tender and cooked well, while the duck drippings are rich and salty; you have to ask for the drippings. Each order comes with plum sauce and is packed nicely. A whole duck is $24.
Although I think the meats are more of a 3.5 out of 5, I bumped this up to a 4-star review since everything I received was tasty and of good quality.
I would give a 4 star for their roasted duck, but because everything else we ordered was not good (we barely touched them), a 3 star would be a generous rating.
We ordered a water boiled vegetable, there were black spots all over the vegetables, they weren't fresh. Their lamb stew was lack of flavor, wasn't heated up throughly that we had to send it back.
The service was very good, the waiters were very friendly.
NEW MANAGEMENT. HORRIBLE SERVICE.
food also NOT as good as it was before. Unless you want to feel like you are ingesting 10 disgusting lemons, do not order the hot & sour soup. Not sure if they were feeling frisky with the vinegar or something today but it was just repulsive.
The service is horribly slow and communication is super difficult EVEN IF YOU SPEAK CHINESE. They are always rushing you which causes miscommunication in orders. We ordered the soft stir fry noodles and they gave us curry noodles instead (definitely their mistake) but they gave us a reallly hard time, not to mention MAJOR ATTITUDE with this and blamed us when we got the wrong item. This place looks like it'd be authentic with the yummy looking ducks in the window but you'll get nothing but rude service and sub par tasting Chinese food.
I'm so full and so much to take home, Yang chow fried rice and seafood chow Marin were excellent.
