Vinh Sun Closed?

Some sort of notice about a court order in the window (should have taken a pic, sorry) no BBQ meat in the window.

Establishment looks very empty. Anyone know what is going on? And, very importantly, where should I be going now for char siu?

      OK, cool, thanks. Still need new BBQ meat source.

        I'm eating the roast duck from that joint next to dumpling house, it's pretty tasty, better than hk eatery's by a slim margin. there's also that sketchy/authentic bbq place next to hei lai moon although I feel like the duck they use is not too great

    2. I never liked Vinh-Sun. Just go a couple doors down to Quic Pic, it's the best.

        cool, thanks Luther.

        Doh, now I am hungry.

          Quic Pic really does have the best BBQ. And I tried pretty much all the places in the area (by Hei La Moon, by Best Little, the hole in the wall close to Taiwan Cafe).
          The only thing I liked about Vinh Sun was their vegetable choice. I like napa cabbage, but prefer crisp bitter greens. Oh and I thought their wontons were pretty nice.
          Chinatown Cafe has the best crispy pork by a wide margin, though, but it's not close to the other restaurants.

            I've never eaten at Chinatown Cafe but a few years ago the guy who runs Winsor told me he thinks Wing (of the original Wing's Kitchen) works there now. So I really should check it out since Wing always treated me and my friends well--I even got a tour of the kitchen when his wife was working there, but sadly took no pictures.

        2. Sad. I was just thinking about their sticky rice with bacon and sausage after trying the Clay Pot Cafe rice. I don't like non-sticky rice, but I really like sticky rice. They were also open late, unlike so many other places.
