There’s a time and place for eating sesame chicken on the floor with your friends and watching Netflix, but sometimes you have to put real pants on and leave the house. KauKau BBQ is a good spot to wear your t-shirt and jeans with the hole in them, get a large round table with the gang, and do some classic family-style Chinese. Plus, the tables have lazy susans, which makes “pass the fried rice” extremely easy to do. They’re most famous for their barbecue pork, which we especially endorse with a side of potstickers, but the tart lemon chicken is truly not to be missed.
