HK's Cantonese B-B-Q Pork aka 'Char Siu' - There are more and better choices than Wan Chai's Joy Hing!!

When good HK 'Char Siu' are being discussed on this board, almost everyone immediately points to Wan Chai's Joy Hing as their 'go to' choice. Well!! Not so fast!! Though I do agree Joy Hing's version is mighty fine, but during my past trip, I have eaten a few versions that I think can give it a serious run for the money!!
Some include those from Star of Canton, Sun Tung Lok, Fu Sing....etc. Nicely burnt at the edge to give it the mesmerizing smokiness, all of the mentioned ones were nicely seasoned, tender and juicy and delicious sticky honey sauce to match. Even Toronto's John's B-B-Q does an awesome job with their 'King of Char Siu' that can rub shoulder with some of HK's best!!
