went with The Kid and was a little disappointed. the BBQ pork's skin was way too hard, not crisp at all, although the meat was dense, and Porky. also started with the Jellyfish and Beef shin which we thought was good and a good combo.
tried the Hong Kong style Lo Mein with U-Choy and oyster sauce and thought it was pretty weak. the broth had a very strong lo mein flavor that was slightly un-pleasant. however the Pea Shoots with Garlic was outstanding even at $15.
we did get to see a whole Piggy (photo below) that was waiting to be picked up and that looked pretty good.
When I dropped by on New Years Day there were 4 piglets waiting to be picked up...they said just give 1 week notice ($16 per lb)...anybody have a birthday coming up?
Their pea shoots are by far my favorite in the city (so far). A friend and I went and got 2-meat rice plates. Between the two of us we tried the duck, chicken, roast pork, and ribs. I think the ribs were our favorite. The rest was decent, but not amazing. Mostly just fun to have that many different types of roast meat.
