Guangdong Barbecue Tea House Opens in Sunset

After more than 15 years in business, Sunset roast duck specialist Toon Kee (2191 Irving St.) has closed and a new place called Guangdong Barbecue Tea House has reopened in its place. Opening an Asian restaurant along this already food-heavy stretch of Irving is a risky proposition, but the restaurant has at least one specialty that isn't plentiful in the neighborhood: Braised pigeon. The menu also has Cantonese offerings like roast duck (for those who used to line up for it at Tong Kee nightly, no doubt), roast goose, soy sauce chicken and suckling pig and Vietnamese staples like banh mi sandwiches and hu tieu mi (pork noodle soup).
