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). $
