HK BBQ Master

What we have here, ladies and gentlemen, is the world's finest Chinese BBQ shop in all of existence.  There are tons of shops in Richmond and Vancouver, and some even have massive line ups to show their worth to the world (for example that one place in Parker Place), but it's this tiny little tucked away place in the parking lot of Superstore (Richmond location) that in my opinion holds the title. 

The BBQ pork here is not too lean, not too fat (unless you order it that way), the meat comes apart easily and seasoned perfectly.  They're the masters of caramelizing the BBQ sauce and it leaves the surface just a bit crispy while the inside is still flavourful and juicy.  The BBQ duck is another good reason to go here, not very gamey, succulent juicy goodness with every bite.  Then there's the Roast Pork.  The pork is roasted to a golden hue, the skin is crispy, even hours after you buy your little taste of heaven.  Underneath the skin, there is a nice layering of fat and lean meat, and while the fat just melts in your mouth, the lean parts aren't dried out and still very moist. 

That place in Parker Place (I don't even know the name) always has a line up, but I've tried it and it doesn't compare.  Sometimes, they even botch the order and it comes out way too lean and dried out.  I've been to HK a couple of times, had they said that the best Chinese food is in China (or HK), but that's not necessarily true.  Some of the best chefs have found their way across the Pacific, and into B.B.Q. Master's kitchen.  If you want awesome BBQ Pork, Roast Pork, or BBQ Duck, you don't need to go futher than Richmond.
