Cheap Eats: Sun Wah BBQ

Sun Wah BBQ is a family-owned business that graced Chicago with the most amazing barbecue roasted duck in the city.  Founder, Mr. Eric Cheng originally opened his Hong Kong-style BBQ restaurant in New York but decided to uproot his business and start anew in the city of Chicago.  You will always see Mr. Cheng's children, Laura, Kelly, and Mike, at the restaurant, busily carrying out the family dream.  This place is perfect for a large parties since an order of the Beijing Duck Feast comes with savory duck soup and wonderful duck fried rice.  Plus, the whole prixe-fix meal it only $37.00 AND Sun Wah BBQ is BYOB!  Remember to wear your stretchy pants because you will practically be waddling out door with a full belly.   Reservations can be made via phone.

The casual and cozy dining atmosphere is perfect for large parties and family-style meals.
The Beijing duck is not on the menu, but it's what Sun Wah BBQ is famous for.  Don't hesitate to look through menu because they offer a variety of delicious Hong Kong-style dishes.

Roast pork. ORDER THIS.  A perfect start to your meal. 
Crispy skin with tender, juicy bits of pork.  Absolutely amazing.

Rice congee soup with lean pork and egg. 
This soup has a porridge-like texture and is absolutely wonderful. 
Beef chow fun.
A server slices and plates the duck at your table. We ordered two whole roasted ducks for a party of 8.
The guy moved so fast I couldn't even get a clear shot.  A variety of garnishes and steamed buns accompany the roasted duck.

Final presentation.   I DON'T WANT TO SHARE!  PHENOMENAL.  The meat is extremely juicy while the skin maintains its crispiness.  Definitely the BEST place for barbecue duck in Chicago.
Pickled daikon.
Sliced green onions and diced carrots.
Duck sauce, which is basically hoisin sauce.  AMAZE.
Steamed bao.  Don't they look so adorbs?
Load up the steamed bun with a lot of duck, garnishments, and duck sauce.
Duck soup.  The remainder of the duck is used to make the duck soup and duck fried rice.  Nothing goes to waste.

Duck fried rice.  At this point, my stretchy pants can't expand anymore... but that still doesn't stop me from eating.
You also have the option of ordering duck lo mein.

Happy eating.
