I’ve mentioned Ming’s here before, and even though I used to be pretty much a regular here, I haven’t had a chance to go back since I started this blog. While the draw at Ming’s is siu mei (roasted meats), they have a full menu, including congee (Mandarin: xifan, rice porridge), and excellent vegetable dishes.
One of the better bargains on Buford Highway is the meat and rice dishes here. Soy sauce chicken, green vegetable (yo tsai), and rice for $4.99. I still forget to photograph my food before I eat, so the first picture is well into the carnage (notice that half the quail is already gone as is part of the chicken…).
Roasted quail were beckoning from the case near the door – so we had to order one (I remember pigeon, not quail in Hong Kong, though I guess pigeon is still not widely accepted in the US – perhaps because we look at them as rats).
MIng’s is one of the best places in Atlanta for siu mei – and it’s evidenced in the steady stream of people coming in (lot’s of takeout – this place is small). A couple of caveats when visiting – Ming’s is closed on Tuesdays and many times they run out of siu mei, especially chicken and duck before 7PM.
