Chinese Roast Meats for Take Away

pups224 | Jun 4, 2009 10:24 AM

I love going to Chinatown to shop for groceries, fresh fish and roast meats and fowl to stash in the fridge on a busy week.
I had been buying roast pork and duck at Deluxe Food Mart on Elisabeth/Mott for several years. I also bought their hot food, which I found serviceable.
Last time I went there both the red cooked pork and the duck were really fatty and the take-out foot was awful. It has been going down hill for a while.
Ed Levine on Serious Eats recommended Roasted Delights on Catherine. When I went there it was out of business and the phone was disconnected. I was bummed.
Does anyone have any new suggestions? There are a tons of shops that sell roast meat but I would probably have a heart attack before I tasted them all.
