CÔTE-DES-NEIGES / NDG
This under the radar Cantonese BBQ joint in Côte-des-Neiges serves some of the most authentic Chinese BBQ in the city. While the classics (char siu, roast pork and roast duck) are sublime, Dak Hing deserves a special mention for their roasted chicken wings and delicious Zhongzi (sticky rice stuffed with peanuts or mung beans).
This NDG Szechuan and Taiwanese spot has amassed a cult following over the years for its fiery flavours and hard to find regional specialties. The mapo tofu is a staple but don’t miss the poached fish, loaded with chillies and peppercorns, for a true Szechuan experience.
