Datang BBQ Express - Yaohan Food Court
Datang BBQ is a vendor located in Yaohan Centre, in Richmond. One would not expect great BBQ to come out of a vendor in a food court, but Datang has definitely defied that notion! I'm quite familiar with the BBQ shops in Richmond, and I have to say, Datang is definitely up to par! However, Parker Place & HK BBQ Master still take the top crown, but that's pretty much a given haha. Still, Datang is pretty impressive by food court standards!
They have a ton of mix and match combos for you to choose from! All meals come with free soup or tea.
My apologizes for the horrendous lighting haha. If you've read any of my previous reviews on Yaohan, you know that foodtography does not translate well under its florescent lightening :(
I'm pretty much a DSLR noob haha, so if you know how to counteract this problem, please let me know in the comments below!
I was pleasantly surprised by Datang! I ordered the BBQ duck and the marinated pork ribs and the portion size was just right. Both were delicious! The BBQ duck was tender, and the skin was flavourful and juicy. The pork ribs had been marinated very well, and had a deep, smokey flavour. The rice was long grain rice, which is my favourite! If you ask, they'll also drizzle some of the delicious sweet BBQ sauce on your rice!
I haven't tried their char siu or roast pork, so I'll have to see how it compares to Parker Place and HK BBQ Master's. Next time you're in the Yaohan food court I recommend you give Datang a try!
