"Barbeque #2"

That's what their sign says...the takeout menu says "BBQ Unlimited" and apparently they used to be and/or have another location in the Valley. South side of Melrose, around Harvard, I believe.

I went there after hearing that they had roast ducks hanging in the window. They have an extensive menu that includes soup, "barbequed & marinate" (the duck, whole pigs, pork tongue, etc.) porridge, "wonton noodle," soft noodle/lo mein, fried rice, tofu, hot pot, fried egg, vegetarian, fish, seafood, and all the other stuff you'd expect from a Chinese restaurant.

Duck report: I ordered a whole roast duck to go. They handed me a heavy styrofoam box in a double plastic bag. It cost about $12 as I recall (takeout menu says $13). I opened it up after I got home; they had cleavered it in the usual fashion. The skin was the crispy mahogany stuff; there were a couple of small containers of dipping sauce. I was only slightly hungry, but dug right in. I didn't bother with the sauce, just enjoyed the pure duck goodness. What makes this duck special is that it was really large and meaty. It was also not overcooked, which is important in that I have been reheating portions of it all week (in my toaster oven on the broil setting, with a little garlic salt sprinkled over). I've probably gotten 5-6 meals out of it.

I must go back and try some of their other stuff...could this be the good Chinese place in the neighborhood???
