Sun’s BBQ

I persuaded Clingon, Leng Lui and Office Dad to have lunch at Sun’s BBQ. We picked up Leng Lui’s friend, Sun (no relation to the restaurant) along the way. The restaurant was bustling with customers devouring succulent BBQ meats on noodles or rice.

Office Dad and I have started to share an entree for lunch in an attempt to eat less and save a little. We ordered the Red Curry Beef with Spaghetti ($12.99). Leng Lui and Clingon always order BBQ Duck and Roasted Pork on Rice, while Sun ordered curried something in a noodle soup.

Leng Lui and Clingon’s dish came with boiled lettuce and complimentary soup. Both are light eaters, so they both gave most of it to me. The soup was tasty and simple.

The BBQ meats at Sun’s are very good. I like the dark roasting of the duck skin and the leanness of the meat. The roasted pork has a thin layer of white fat and a crunchy, salty skin. I bought over $60 worth of roasted pork, BBQ pork and a whole duck home with me. I freeze it and use in my fried rice and ramen.

I enjoyed the curry sauce which was rich, creamy and buttery. The beef was tender and a good amount. I liked the addition of water chestnuts and baby corn. The broccoli was still crunchy. I wish there was more spaghetti, there was only a small fistful. However, with Leng Lui and Clingon’s charitable contributions of boiled lettuce and soup, I was comfortably full.

As for service… let’s just say you come here for the food. Don’t wait for the server to come to the table with the bill. You have to go up and pay at the cashier. Oh yeah, don’t let the door hit you on the way out.
