A quick duck feast at Wah Fung BBQ, a little local legend in Redfern.
[UPDATED JANUARY 2013]
Wah Fung is your basic ducks-in -the-window BBQ joint in Redfern. It looks like it has been there forever, it's wonderfully shabby and very popular. There's lots of Chinese folks eating here which is always a good sign.
Roast duck on rice, about $10. Shawn's favourite meal, excluding fresh seafood.
It's not fancy, not even schmancy, but it's a bloody good local if you happen to be in this neck of the woods.
[BACK AGAIN FOR LUNCH - JANUARY 2013...]
Soya chicken noodle soup - about $10.50. A bowl of your regular classic Chinese broth with egg noodles and veggies, with a nice quarter of chook on the side. The chook was pretty good, would have been better if they didn't microwave it. We wonder if they assume white trash like us don't like cold chicken, or maybe it was because it was Sunday, perhaps an off-bbq day. Once the chook cooled down it was wonderful again.
Beef brisket noodle soup - about $10. Hunks of slow cooked beef in a a standard Chinese broth with egg noodles. Perfect for a hangover.
As we eat a bunch of Chinese lads at the table next to us are having a feast of non-bbq, stir fry and hot-pot stuff, it looked excellent, particularly the pork ribs. We'll be back...
Oh no! Wah Fung's premises are up for auction. The boss lady tells us they may have to move but they have some options in the immediate area, and they are very keen to keep on bbq-ing, no need to panic.
Wah Fung BBQ is at 64 Regent st Redfern, phone (02) 9698 2898.
