On the corner of 61st Street and 8th avenue in Sunset Park, Brooklyn you'll find a sprawling restaurant called Jade Plaza. The specialty is seafood. Now I want you to walk straight past the entrance to the corner and enter a side door for some fabulous takeout treats.Review By: Sam Sayegh
Behind a glass divider you'll see Jade Plaza's true treasures. Hanging from hooks - some of the tastiest duck in the city is served braised or peking style. There are whole chickens coated with scallions and a tasty soy sauce. The meat literally falls off the bone and melts in your mouth. And then there is my personal favorite, the roast pig. Juicy pieces of meat with a crunchy layer of skin remaining. All are quite delicious and addictive.
The chicken and duck can be bought whole, or for as little as three dollars on a bed of rice served with chinese vegetables. The drippings from the meat are use to flavor the rice. They also sell roast pork and spareribs. But don't expected the gooey variety found in most chinese takeouts.
There are a few drawbacks to Jade Plaza. They don't deliver and the duck is a quick seller and once it's gone, they're done for the day. So be sure to get there early!
