Ton Kiang is a welcoming nook in the ID with a winsome, petite woman having her way with a small cleaver on giant slabs of meat. The char siu ($6.95 per pound) appears to be made from shoulder, as the pretty (if slightly messy) pile of meat is comprised of multiple muscles with plenty of bits of flavorful fat attached. There's no unnatural outer red ring on Ton Kiang's BBQ (unlike other places that use red food coloring), just a nice "smoke ring" of sorts, a centimeter or so deep, and a thick, caramelized outer layer. The flavor here is exceptional, and prices are cheap—a satisfying dinner for two runs around $10.
