叉燒: Cantonese Style BBQ

30 Jul

If you are a fan of Asian food, meat, and yummy food, and you haven’t tried Cantonese BBQ yet, go yelp up the closest one near you and take a visit!  This trip I had to Ming’s BBQ was pretty successful.  We ordered a platter “Special Side BBQ” with 3 types of meats (left to right of photo above):

  • Roast Pork (脆皮火肉)
  • Roast Duck (脆皮火鴨)
  • Honey BBQ Pork (蜜汁叉燒)

I absolutely love Roast Pork, as it’s got a perfect mix of crunch and meatiness, but the Roast Duck and Honey BBQ Pork was quite tasty also.  The only complaint I had of that day was that they put a bit toooooo much BBQ sauce on so it was a bit too sweet/saucy/salty… but some people love that!

Along with all the meat, we also ordered a Eggplant with Garlic Sauce (recipe here).  Not everyone loves eggplants, but a lot of people that have tried this dish like it!
