HK B.B.Q. master

HK B.B.Q. master
4651 no 3 road
richmond, b.c.

YES!!! this place has brought much joy to my life over the long vancouver winter and i wanna share the link. HK B.B.Q. master is located beneath the no 3 road canadian superstore in a netherworld of hole-in-the-wall restaurants and small businesses. parking is a bit of a drag, but be patient, the reward is great... unlike many chinese food spots w/ bible-sized menus, there is a strict focus to the options available and no significant vegetarian items (unless a plate of steaming white rice w/ chili sauce or steamed bok choi tickles your fancy). HK B.B.Q. master don't do much, but what they do is done w/ deft expertise, love, and attention to detail. the deal here (as you may infer from the name) is chinese barbecue. pork (lean or fatty) and various types of chicken (w/ a daily greens/veg and soup special). there seems to be a few other choices, but i'll have to dig deeper on future visits to find out more. eat in or take out type of place. 7-8 small tables. clean. most importantly (to me), the price/quality ratio is sublime and the staff are very attentive, friendly, and open. the portions, solid. both dancing bear, ashley ash, and the stunt man have joined me on recent trips and i'm happy to report that the quality has been consistent. my only qualm might be the paper plates (recyclable???), but if you like chinese-style barbecued meats don't hesitate to try this place out. easily worth the drive/sky-train to richmond...


  1. BBQ master indeed! I can't wait to go back for another visit.
