Overcome by the desire for BBQ on rice, we decided to give them a try. Of course, they do more than BBQ on rice here. There are breakfasts, not to mention ice cream and bubble tea in many forms (thus the milk and sugar part) and even a full bar! Order at the counter and your food is delivered to you. Although I could not hear the owner at the counter and had to ask him to repeat himself, they were quick!
We had two combo plates which came to less than $25 (I can't remember). The first was BBQ pork and duck. The duck was quite good. Crispy skin and tender meat. The pork while tasty was surprisingly a little on the chewy side.
For the other combo, we chose roast pork and Hainanese chicken. The roast pork was a level up and brought us some pleasure. Tender and meaty (what else?) with a nice just crispy fatty skin. As far as Hainanese chicken, I have openly questioned the allure of this dish in this space in the past. I was never really sure what makes it such a classic for many people. At this point, I am beginning to understand. This version was silky, smooth and tender while the accompanying garlicky, salty, green 'relish' was excellent. Consider me sold!
While my interior photo of Milk and Sugar is crap, this is a noisy little place with some life. A fair bit of table space and the news on TV. If I lived here, I would be in all the time!
For what it's worth, we give Milk and Sugar BBQ 3 1/2 out of 5.
