This no-frills joint tempts passersby with lacquer-skinned roast ducks hanging by their necks in the steamed-up window. The menu is expansive but inexpensive: The Pei Par BBQ duck and the Hong-Kong–style barbecued pig are sublime in their simplicity, savory and slick with fat. Chinese broccoli arrives jade-green and crisp, and the beef chow fun comes out charred and tasting of the properly smoking wok. Even the egg rolls are notable, dotted with bits of roasted pork. Our advice? Order lots and eat the leftovers at home.

You haven't had good food in Uptown until you've had duck from Sun Wah. Each duck feeds four people three courses: duck soup, duck sandwiches, and either duck fried rice or duck lo mein. So come with seven friends and get two ducks for both the rice and the noodles. At about $10/person, you've got plenty left in the budget for a few drinks.
