Sun Wah B-B-Q Restaurant Restaurant Review

: There are some 200 Cantonese and Hong Kong-style dishes on the menu at this Uptown restaurant; we’ve only gotten around to trying half a dozen. The problem? We keep going back to our favorites. First, there’s the crisp-skinned, smoked-in-house duck that --- when ordered whole --- is carved tableside from atop a wooden cart. It comes with puffy buns that are ready to be stuffed, soup and noodles or rice that utilize all the animal’s tasty bits. Not to be forgotten is the pork, also smoked on the premises (skeptics can see it hanging in the front window for proof); it, too, is full of rich flavor. Paired with stir-fried Chinese broccoli or stuffed eggplant and a Tsingtao beer, we're good to go. The lively, loft-like room with plenty of lazy Susans atop the large, round tables makes Sun Wah a perfect spot for big groups or families.
