The doorway to breakfast. Golden barbecue has the best Char shu (CHAW-shoo) or as I call it barbecue pork. Situated in the valley next to the best Asian supermarket Yen’s, it is a perfect stop on a shopping trip in the Fortitude Valley. When Roy and I started dating years ago, I used to have Fridays off, and would go and visit him for lunch. This place was a regular spot for us, the atmosphere is busy and run like a good hole in the wall food spot. You never now where you are going to sit or who is next to you. The lady who runs the floor is fantastic, she is very direct and gets the job done quickly. A meal here is usually sit down, order, and then eat, leave. No mucking around as there is someone waiting for your table (chair I should say). It may take you as little as 20 minutes to fill the gap in your belly which needs barbecue pork. Take the time to go and visit here as it will never disappoint you.
My regular order is the barbecue pork with a fried egg and oyster sauce. As an accompanying dish is a small bowl of soup. These soups change regularly and I have never had a bad one. Ingredients vary during seasons and some can be a little scary, but take a bite and you will be very interested. I attempted making a soup from here, a pork and winter melon soup with barley. It would have been great if I had of bought the right melon. Bitter melon is NOT even close to winter melon. So if you are unsure ask! I did end up making it again, it did work.
Roys meal was the barbecue pork wonton soup. He is convinced that they make the best wontons. I disagree however the soup stock is fantastic, never to salty.
