If you love Cantonese barbecued meats as much as I do, this is the place to find the best in Sheepshead Bay. The variety here is impressive, and you can order most things by the quarter pound if you want to sample suckling pig, duck, chicken, and squid on a single visit. Feed a crew with a whole soy sauce chicken, which comes slightly charred and served in a brown paper bag. It doesn’t need extras, and you’ll be happy to tear into it with your hands. Beyond barbecue, the Singapore mei fun, a dish of thin, curried noodles studded with shrimp, pork, and vegetables, has a flavor that practically punches you in the tongue with just the right amount of heat. Golden Z opens at 10am, which is a great time to come by for a pint of their very good congee. Pork and preserved egg is the classic, but you can also get it with fish, frog, or beef.
