Siu Cheung - YES!!

Over the weekend I went to Siu Cheung, the "awesome Chinatown meat market" that Steven Stern posted about some months back, and I agree 100% with his assessment: go there! Now! It's a real gem - spotless, well-organized, and very cheap with a huge selection. I spent about 40 minutes just browsing around the various coolers. I bought some of their partially prepared meats: spareribs in black bean sauce with chilis (2.99/lb), minced pork with preserved vegetables (2.29/lb), and marinated flank steak (4.79/lb), which we cooked up that night with a bit of extra garlic - it was delicious. Really, really delicious. I was pretty package-laden by the time I stopped in and didn't get any of the soup dumplings or fresh wontons, but they looked great. Topping it all off, the fellow behind the counter was very friendly and helpful. Once again...go now!
