It’s been scientifically proven that things on a stick taste better, but the food at Friend BBQ in Chinatown would be great even without the skewer. This small spot has a long menu of various grilled items like fatty beef, lamb, chicken heart, and tendon that you order by the piece, all heavily seasoned with cumin and chili. It’s reasonably priced enough that you can try lots of different pieces, and they stay open till 2am.
