Finally getting around to posting the pictures from Ming’s BBQ in Duluth…thanks goes to @chowdownatl for another great recommendation for an area I’m not super familiar with! Ming’s offers up a cornucopia of Cantonese style dishes, but most people come here for the BBQ which is displayed in all its glory behind a glass case perfect for gawking!
Before we go any further, keep in mind this post is about the newer Duluth location off of Pleasant Hill and not the Buford highway location.
As with most new locations, it’s good to go with a group so you can sample several menu items, but if you cannot the honey pork, salt and pepper tofu and the dry beef chow fun were the consensus favorites of the table. The honey pork is exactly what it sounds like, slow roasted pork shoulder seasoned with honey, five spice, soy and sometimes hoisin sauce; it is ridiculously tender and addictive…if you have more than 4 people I would suggest two orders.
The dry beef chow fun was a delicious bowl of stir fried flat noodles with tender pieces of beef that had a wonderful smoky flavor imparted by the wok; I will order this every time I visit!
Did I mention they also have really big ass glasses of iced tea; the use of the phrase “big ass” is appropriate here as they were at least 40oz and have probably been banned in NYC.
Apart from the aforementioned dishes, we tried the salt and pepper shrimp, a half “Hong Kong style” roasted duck and some gringo centric dishes like beef with broccoli, shredded pork with garlic sauce and the cashew chicken. Everything was solid and even the gringos agreed that both the beef and chicken dishes above were better than any combo numbered meal they had experienced at Panda Express…
As mentioned above, the menu at Ming’s is huge and this list hardly puts a dent in it. They also serve several congees, soups and vegetarian dishes so there is literally something for everyone; check out their massive menu at the link below:
Next time you’re in Duluth or just craving something a little different, Ming’s should definitely be on your list!
