Awesomeness Alert - Spare Rib Bits at Sang Kee

A cold night recently inspired a visit to Sang Kee for Roast Pork Noodle Soup. While we were there, we couldn't resist getting some Peking Duck too, which was quite delicious, much better than our last sample.

But the real standout was the result of an irresponsible addition of yet more pork to our table: an appetizer of "Spare Rib Bits."

They're sticky and sweet and salty and juicy and porky. Which is to say, awesome...

  1. If you order the spare rib wonton noodle soup, this is what they throw in there. Absolutely fabulous on a cold crappy day, except the bones are kind of a pain...

  2. Indeed, the ribs are pretty good in soup, but I too found the bones to be enough of a pain that I just get the roast pork noodle soup, which is almost as pork-candy-decadent. As you say, fabulous on a cold crappy day. In fact I want a bowl right now.

    The only downside to the soup is that the broth dissolves some of the sticky-sweet coating on both the ribs and the char siu, so sometimes I have to go with the pure intensity of unmitigated glazed meat on a plate.

    Thanks, and I'll assume that was sincere, but I don't allow my comments section to be used for seeding links to unrelated sites, so I'm not posting your comment as submitted. Sorry.
