This is a hidden gem. I’ve had Chinese barbecue at many places and this is hands-down the best. This is a small mom-and-pop deli style place. They may be going through a name change as the business cards at the counter said “Sunlake BBQ Dimsum”.
I noticed that there was a group of Chinese men at a table enjoying what looked like a feast. This was a good sign!
There is a section with a large steam table with various prepared foods to go. There is also a small dim sum section. Finally there is a display case with the barbecue meats.
I ordered a combo with duck, cha su pork and soy sauce chicken with rice. The portion was large. I asked for some bok choy and the lady threw it in for free. I also ordered some dim sum, to be exact, shumai, steamed pork buns and pork riblets. Everything was very tasty and fresh. What really got to me was that the barbecue meats were not greasy at all, which is usually the case at most places.
Finally, this place is inexpensive. All this food set me back $17.00.
