Best Bar B Q Restaurant
Where we've featured it
Naming yourself the “best” always feels like overcompensation, but Best Bar B Que actually lives up to its name. This remains one of our go-to spots in Chinatown for Chinese barbecue, with some great siu yuk, roasted duck, and chicken, though we’ve had better char siu elsewhere. At Thanksgiving, they even sell stuffed barbecue turkeys, which, when compared to burning down a garage with a turkey deep-fryer, is definitely the best option.
No matter how it’s cooked, we’re big fans of duck. But there’s something really special about Chinese barbecue duck, and few places do it better than Best Bar B Q in Chinatown. Somehow, they consistently produce a bird with crispy skin and moist meat, which is quite a feat. And when served on top of some rice that’s drenched in the ever-present mixture of drippings and soy sauce at Chinese barbecue spots, we think it’s one of the best meals you can have in Boston, which is exactly why it’s one of our favorite spots in Chinatown.
