Frequented by tourists and local chefs (after their workday ends), this Chinatown institution serves authentic Cantonese cuisine in a no-frills dining room. The two-story interior is furnished with worn wooden tables, surrounded by a handful of traditional Asian paintings. The windows are hung with pork and poultry, advertising the two specialties: Chinese-style barbecued pork and roasted Peking duck, served with rice and blanched kai-lan (Chinese broccoli). Noodles, congee, and hotpot dishes round out the menu, along with more adventurous options like fried pig intestines. The restaurant is open until 2 a.m., making it a popular spot for late night dining.

Insider Tip:

Although not highly advertised, BBQ King has a BYO policy, so be sure to pick up wine from Red Bottle (just a two-minute walk away) before your meal.
