Char Sue is a casual Asian restaurant in the heart of the Lower East Side. “Char Sue,” is derived from cha siu, the Cantonese technique for roasting meats skewered on a fork over a fire. The menu is heavily influenced by the familiar flavors of Vietnamese, Thai, Chinese and Japanese cuisine, but Chef Rojas has translated his passion for Asian ingredients into uniquely re-imagined dishes. Menu items include tender Japanese curry lamb necks, five spice duck wings, char siu pork ribs and black pepper beef tacos made with crunchy egg roll shells and signature roasted duck rubbed with Sichuan spices. Some of the meats are hung and displayed as a homage to Cantonese cuisine.
