Some Chinatown updates

Tried the new Cantonese roast meat place across from Ginza calld Great BBQ. Nice glazed roast pork (cha1 shao1), but a notch down from China Pearl Best Cafe's. I do like their roast pork with crispy skin (shao1 rou4) -- got a nice cut of what was the shoulder -- good crispy skin, but less of the pearly fattness of the belly cut. Sauce is a bit heavy on star anise and/or clove. Worth checking out more.

Chinatown Eatery is closing at the end of the month as the building is going to be demolished (or seriously renovated). Bummer -- Gourmet Seafood's a favourite of mine and will be sad to see it go.
