**Big Wong BBQ & Grill is now closed** Are you a fan of Cantonese BBQ? I AM! So, I was sure excited when a new Cantonese BBQ place opened near my house! Big Wong BBQ & Grill definitely looks out of place by the way, it’s totally located in what used to be a fast food restaurant. But don’t judge a book by it’s cover like I did initially, cause the food was EXCELLENT.
So here’s what I ordered:
Roast Duck 香烤脆皮鸭
This is one of those dishes that you just have to order at a Cantonese BBQ place to see if they can make it right. It’s a classic, and I mean… I don’t know about you but duck to me is like one of the yummiest things ever that we just don’t enough in the States! Well, Big Wong PASSED on my book because the duck was the right about of juicy and the right amount of tasty. A sauce also came with it on the side, but I didn’t find it super necessary.
Crispy Roast Pork 脆皮燒肉
Not to be confused with Cantonese Barbecued Pork (Char siu), the Crispy Roast Pork has a crispy skin and is made with Pork Belly. This is MY FAVORITE Cantonese BBQ dish, so you can imagine my excitement when I found that Big Wong’s Crispy Roast Pork had an incredibly crisp and the right amount of juicy meat. There was also a tasty sauce that came with it.
Chinese Broccoli 芥藍
I can’t just eat an entire meal with zero veggies, so I ordered a plate of Chinese Broccoli. It went well with ALL the meats, so I had zero complaints. I mean, kind of hard to mess up veggies in my opinion so this was an obvi PASS.
Bonus Item: Cantonese Style Pickled Veggies 酸菜
This I didn’t order, they bring it as an appetizer type of deal to every table before your meal arrives. It was Bean Sprouts and Cabbages – sweet and fermented (like sauerkraut but not so sour), and was nice to have while I waited for my food so I didn’t starve to death.
