1st Chinese BBQ is one of those places where you find a string of cooked ducks hanging behind glass, and staff with a slight language barrier. We were some of the only white people in there, and that’s generally a good sign.
This is not by any stretch of the imagination, a vegetarian’s paradise. In fact, it’s probably their worst nightmare. In an effort to avoid both pork broth and cute, dead things, I chose vegetables and soup. The boyfriend, on the other hand, had tender pork with rice.
The prices are right, the meat is perfect, but the location is in the nether regions of North Austin. If you’re wanting to cruise the nearby Asian markets, then stop for a tasty lunch, it’s well worth it.
