You’re missing out if the only barbecue you’re eating in Charleston is smoked brisket, whole hog, or pulled pork. This spot behind Jackrabbit Filly does Chinese barbecue with a Carolina influence in North Charleston, and it’s a fun group lunch, dinner, or Happy Hour move. Walk inside past the two massive 500-pound lion statues the team flew in from China that flank the entrance, place an order at the counter, and find a table under the lanterns at the bar or a booth in the main dining room. Get some smoked meats by the pound, like five-spice duck or chopped smoked pork that melts in your mouth, along with the BBQ meats on rice plate with crispy pork belly or cha shao spare ribs that come with bok choy and a ginger scallion relish.
