We are pretty much always at Spadina Avenue in Toronto, the "Chinatown", but has never been to this restaurant - ever. Why? Because the outside is not very welcoming, it looks old and it is! But the sign board boasts: The BEST BBQ Pork in North America. And it sure is!
The Barbecued Pork "melts in your mouth" and I have had many BBQ pork's but theirs is hands-down the best by far.
Came in this past weekend with my family, consisting of 4 adults and 1 child, we spent $45.00 and was so surprised at how reasonable the prices were. We ordered: Young Chow fried rice, Eggplant schezuan style, Chicken noodles (fried noodles) and a good sized Sea Bass, which was steamed then fried topped with the most delicious sauce...the servings are generous and the other patrons with us, was enjoying their food tremendously.
I guess it being old and really a "hole in a wall" kinda restaurant makes it unique, the food is excellent, the service is fine...we really have no complaint about this restaurant. We are definitely now repeat customers...it's homey, it's not pretentious, it's not commercial "Chinese" food...it's not what the other shi-shi Chinese restaurants pretends to be, were you end up getting small portions at expensive prices!
If you want to try a very laid-back, simple atmosphere with GREAT Chinese food, then this is the place to be...the BBQ pork alone with a bowl of rice is enough to make you smile, as your taste buds enjoy the deliciousness of this delicacy =))
