[香港 HONG KONG] - A Temple of Roasties 再興燒臘飯店 Joy Hing Roasted Meat (Wanchai)

Joy Hing 再興燒臘飯店 really needs no introduction. It has already been put on the map, thanks to Anthony Bourdain: Layover Hong Kong and probably numerous other write-ups by local bloggers and reviewers.

But despite all that, Joy Hing still maintains that low key neighborhood feel that doesn't seem to be overrun by tourists. No nonsense, efficient, great food, and best of all an affordable price.

Rather than mincing on words, I'll let the photos do the talking.

While waiting in line, the butcher's window provides plenty of photo ops and teases 
Looks like a battlefield. All good stuff I'm sure! 
 "Welcome to the jungle, we've got fun & games! And roasties!"
Action packed in here. 
The secret sauce. Self help for coloring your white rice to your heart's content! 
 Included with your meal, house soup. This one is watercress with pork bones
Upgrade your lifestyle with an entrée plate of cha siu!
Heaven in a plate. No need for wagyu all the time right?
Let's get a closer look at the goodness, shall we? 
Roasties so fine it even makes the butcher cry. (I have no idea how I managed this shot...) 
What are you waiting for? Head here now!
