Crispy-skinned roast pork to die for

conquer | Jul 29, 2013 12:48 PM

at Ho Ho Chinese BBQ.

Much better than Din Ho's and First Chinese's. The meat is succulent, tender and just slightly salty, and there's not a drop of grease on the skin roasted to perfection, to the point where it almost tastes fried (and there's plenty of it). Puts any Latin American or 'upscale' place I've been who try to do some variation of 'crispy pork skin' to shame. I almost wanted to tell them they're charging too little for this. If you have a small appetite, save the meat for take-home, but definitely finish the skin at the restaurant as it doesn't keep (testifies to its freshness).

Also cleaner/nicer than DH and FC. I would come to this place exclusively if I didn't live south.
