Mom and dad were here last week so it was only reasonable if I had brought them out for a meal. But dad’s preference for Chinese food is a little tricky to work with as my sister does not really like roast. So when she is not around, I brought them to HK BBQ on Francis Street. Leaving home for awhile now, decadent roast meats are never too far away thanks to a few restaurants which I frequent including this one and Good Fortune. For me, both are equally lovely but when it comes to dining in, nothing beats the revamped interior of Hong Kong Barbecue.
Large roast came with crispy skinned roast pork and deliciously flavored roast duck. Finger licking good! No need to provide a description but what is better than that crunchy bit of skin followed by juicy roast pork with the savory bottom bit? Nothing. Nom nom nom!
The fried tooth fish is another crowd pleaser. Its crispy on the edges and the buttery fish just flakes of layer after layer. Not to mention, HK BBQ has the perfect condiments and sauce to make what normally is a common fish, a super treat! Funny thing how the fish is kept frozen upon being caught from the artic yet stays perfectly in shape. But the local fish shops in the area always condemn the quality of the tooth fish! Do not even know why!! This is yummy!!
Braised bean curd with vegetables! A final course of greens, bean curd and mushroom to finish the meal. While this was not the most refreshing vegetable course, it provided a subtle finish to an already delicious meal!
Being a frequent customer of HK BBQ, I never quite knew what this restaurant ranked in urbanspoon. Looking it up at work today, this restaurant landed a well deserved 3rd place out of all the Chinese restaurants. Definitely a kickass place which I would frequent over and over! SWEET.
