Good BBQ

HK Magazine - - DINING -

Roast meat. Shop 2, Li Yuen St. East, Cen­tral, 9852-1062. A new take­away shop in Cen­tral, Good BBQ of­fers siu mei boxes (char siu, siu yuk crispy pork belly, poached chicken, roasted duck and soy sauce chicken) rang­ing from $40-80, with mod­ern touches such as bright blue pack­ag­ing and What­sApp de­liv­ery ser­vice.

HIT Good BBQ’s USP is their sous­vide style slow-cooked pork, re­sult­ing in char siu that’s more juicy and ten­der than tra­di­tional roast­ing meth­ods. You can choose from one-, two- or three­item boxes, mix­ing and match­ing lean or fatty pork cuts, and dif­fer­ent parts of the duck and chicken. The char siu was sen­sa­tional—thickly cut, suc­cu­lent pieces with a good fat-to-meat ra­tio and a dark, sticky caramelized edge. The meat was ten­der and evenly cooked, prov­ing the mer­its of the slow-cooked method. We also en­joyed the poached chicken breast, with ten­der, al­most pink­ish meat and a silky, ginger-scented skin.

MISS While the other roasted meats looked promis­ing, the tex­ture dis­ap­pointed. Both the pork belly and roasted duck breast were on the dry side, al­though the pork belly had an ap­pro­pri­ately crispy and de­li­cious crack­ling. The veg­etable sides were a joke, with a few pieces of broc­coli and roasted eg­g­plant go­ing for $8 each; how­ever the on­sen egg was a nice ad­di­tion to the ex­tras menu ($9 each).

BOT­TOM LINE A good de­liv­ery op­tion the next time you’re crav­ing char siu for lunch but want to ap­pear a bit more trendy and eco-con­scious in the of­fice.

Open Mon-Fri, Sun 11am-8pm (de­liv­ery week­days 11am-2pm). $
