The Chinatown Beat: Two Roast Meat Contenders

OK 218 roasts superior chicken and duck, boasting beautiful skin and flavorful meat, reports wleatherette. No reports yet on the noodles, congees, seafood, or casseroles at this Cantonese place.

Chinatown’s New Big Wang is Wallace Stevens’s go-to spot for roast duck and barbecued pork. Also recommended: “hundred flavor” duck or chicken, a killer special that’s poached and marinated in a complex mix of sweet spices.

For a different take on chicken, try the fried stuffed wings at Rainbow Cafe, a family-run Hong Kong-style joint on Mott, suggests designerboy01. They’re deboned and filled to bursting with sticky rice with bits of pork.
