Musings of A Detroit Based Food Fanatic

Zhang BBQ

with 4 comments

   While I was investigating Tai Pan bakery (31664 John R, Madison Height) I noticed that just a couple of stores away there was a Chinese BBQ Shop. I wandered in to investigate and tried to ask some questions of a gentleman sitting behind the counter. I was disappointed that he chose not to speak with me considering that I just wanted to write about his shop. Perhaps he thought I was the health inspector or something. In any case he did have the interesting fare. In addition to roast pork( very good) he had several roast ducks and chickens hanging up. As in many other culture nothing is left to waste and this place was no exceptions. Behind the glass showcase there were duck feet and wings, fried pork intestine, spare ribs and even BBQ squid. All items were available by the pound and several “lunch box’ combinations were available. Zhang BBQ is open 10 AM – 8 PM Monday through Friday and 9 AM – 3 PM Saturday and Sunday but bring cash as charges are not accepted.

  1. I too love this place, reminds me of NY Chinatown. I drive from north of Lansing to get this bbq. Have tried the char siu and tendon but the roast pig and duck are my fav. Be sure to check out the restaurant supply store , grocery and bakery just a couple of doors away. Worth the drive!

  2. Good to see you’re back, ED! I always order from the bbq stn and almost never eat at a chinese place that doesn’t have one (its a hint that the food is authentic) chicken feet are my fave too but only as dim sum.
