I made a (failed) attempt at lunch at Joyce Jiaozi on Joyce today. Bad sign was walking up and seeing the "open sign" not lit. Inside was dark but I saw a lady inside doing some cleaning. Knocked on door and she came to open it, and told me they *may* be open for lunch on Friday, but had this real tentative tone it. I thanked her and left disappointed (wanted to try their "rou jiao mo" before their rumored closure).

Walked north and saw Joyce BBQ, with an adjacent Manila Lechon sign. Hmmm, very curious so I walked in and realize it was the place referenced in some recent Chowtimes threads. The pig looked moist and succulent. There was quite a line so I didn't stay long. Damn if they'd only offer the BBQs with plain rice-to-go !!

Will have to go back and investigate more closely.
