My friend recommended we try Wok N BBQ in Burwood for Chinese BBQ. They’re located just up the block from Burwood station. I think Burwood is one of my favourite suburbs here now because they have so much Chinese food and it’s closer than going to Central for me. The restaurant was clean and tidy and we were able to get a table fairly quickly. In addition to Chinese BBQ, they also serve traditional Cantonese/HK style cafe food.
All of us had the Double Mixed BBQ Plate where you can choose 2 different types of BBQ meats served with rice. I chose the roast pork and char siu. Since they just have to slice up the meat and serve it on rice, the food comes very quickly. Price wise it was pretty cheap at about $12 per plate.
I found the roast pork to be very thinly sliced here and I don’t think the crackling was as crispy as it should’ve been. Flavour wise it was good though. The char siu was on the leaner side than what I’d prefer but it wasn’t dry.
We also ordered a side of Chinese Sausages to share as some of my friends hadn’t tried it before. Our server called it “hong cheurng” or “red sausage” which is not what my parents called it (they call it “siu cheurng” or “roast sausage”. I think it just depends on where you’re from but I found that interesting. Unfortunately it was served cold so it was not as appetizing as it could’ve been. Not straight out of the fridge cold but it wasn’t room temperature either.
I haven’t tried a lot of Chinese BBQ in Sydney but I would prefer Sun Ming in Parramatta over Wok N BBQ. The cuts of meat were better and prices are very similar. I wouldn’t mind coming back to try their other Cantonese style dishes though.
