Joy Hing Roasted Meat
If you dine in here, it will be packed, regardless of when and what day you come, which points to the popularity of this little eatery. It is a place for a quick bite of yummy, cheap food, not for a nice ambience or chatting with friends. The service is very friendly and attentive, which is refreshing for a low-end place. Spartan in décor, customers here eat elbow-to-elbow on short stools, sharing tables with people they may or may not know, but all are there for one thing: the food.
Their meats are authentically charcoal-roasted (not automatic!), with a homemade marinade that is just the right amount of sweetness without being overpowering. Furthermore, they have sauces available on the table, for you to add as much as you like, such as ginger and spring onion sauce (even if you’re not having chicken). The rice is a bit on the wet/soft side, and will need some sauce to go with it, which is unlimited. There is less oil and unnecessary sauce, as they leave it up to the individual to add as desired. You can request meats to be fatty, lean cut or half and half (latter recommended!).
Dishes include their famous char siu, Barbeque pork with rice (Char Siu Fan), roast pork with rice (Siu Yok Fan), Roast pork ribs, as well as Suckling Pig Rice with BBQ Goose. Non-roast dishes are also available, such as Pork trots or Chicken feet in abalone sauce.
Expect to pay HKD 22 – 50 for lunch, tea, and dinner. Details: $22 for a single meat or double assortment with rice all day; Add HKD 6 for a bowl of their house soup, and HKD 10 for a side of BBQ Pork.
Hours: Monday – Saturday 10am-22:30. Closed on Sundays.
