Rating: Best BBQ fowl and pig!
One of the first Hedonist Chinese diners I ever went to — 5 or more years ago! — was at Sham Tseng, but back when they had a different location.
Now that is closed and they have only (I think) their original location.
And even mysteriously for lease is…
Hyper fried pork or such. Actually pretty darn tasty.
The party spread even to the staff.
Green beans. Fine.
Peking duck. Some more stunning poultry! Fabulous and as good as Tasty Duck.
Different presentation on 10/22/17.
Steam fish. A bit dull, but perfectly cooked.
Confetti cake. Even odder.
Overall the private room is a fun time at Sham Tseng. Downstairs is a crowded mess. And while most of their non-BBQ dishes are just fine (solid, but nothing amazing), their BBQ poultry and pig is off the charts great — really really good.
