新雅翠燒味茶餐廳, Central, Hong Kong

Wednesday, June 30, 2010
It appears that Hong Kong has no lack of chinese bbq fast food restaurants. Every corner I turn, I'd see at least one of these chinese bbq restaurants. Well, almost. Wellington Street in particular, as you might already know, has no lack of famous restaurants (Yung Kee, Lin Heung, Mak's Noodles, Tsim Chai Kee etc). Still, it was quite a surprise to all of us that our budget lunch in this random chinese bbq char chan teng turned out to be extremely pleasant too.

Barbequed pork and roasted pork with rice, HK$35

I've since returned again and again to this char chan teng for their char siew siew yuk fan (barbequed pork and roasted pork with rice). I love the crackling on the roasted pork, and the sweet-salty flavour of the barbequed pork. It's the perfect combination, and comes with the obligatory greens that makes me feel better after all the meaty goodness. The sauce is surprisingly flavourful, and my friends often ask for a separate bowl of sauce just so they have more to go with their rice.

The meal includes complimentary coffee, tea or soup, but they are pretty nondescript. I choose the soup most of the time, it's a hit and miss game, but with better odds than the other options. Since our first visit, we have also tried other items on the menu, but nothing really shouts out to us as much as their char siew siew yuk fan. I have to warn that the quality control isn't a hundred percent though. There were times when we have dined and left disappointed when the crackling on the roasted pork was soft instead of crispy, etc. But most of the time, we satisfy our roasted meat craving, leave with a smile on our face, and still have change in our pockets.
