Chinese roast suckling pig

Does anyone know which Chinese BBQ shop have the roast suckling pig by the pound? Looking for a shop in the Scarb, Markham, Richmobd Hill area. It can be in surrounding area, but not too far away.

Most of the chinese BBQ fastfood or foodcourt sell it by the pound. I go to First Markham Place

they all sell by weight.

are you buying the whole pig ? If buying the whole ones, then everyone basically selling them as EACH.

For example -

Suckling pigs are special order for most places, unless it's a restaurant. And then maybe. A lot of bbq places will not make a suckling pig because it might not sell unless it was a special order. I haven't seen suckling pig sold by the pound ever.

We're talking about suckling pig and not roasted pork. They are 2 different items.

I always thought it was called suckling pig even though it's not.
Just like glutinous rice isn't actually glutinous.
I figure it was a mistranslation.

If they do address it as suckling pig instead of full sized pigs, then I've never seen a place that DOES sell by the pound.

The Ho Ho BBQ has the best roasted pig by far, but I have no idea if their suckling pig or BBQ duck are any good.

I will say though, in the past 2 years this place started purposely adding unneeded bones to the weight being sold to the customer, something they were careful not to do years earlier.

The bbq place inside market village sometime has suckling pig but rarely. They specialize in roast goose.

Lots of restaurants will sell it by the "order" on weekends. The quantity by the "order" differs from place to place. Don't expect a lot as quantities are usually limited. I know Peaktop at FMP sells suckling pig by the order on weekends, and have also done special order(read: whole) from them a few times in the last couple of months(crazy in-laws).

The definition of glutinous is "gummy, having the quality of glue", I think you are mistaking it for the word gluten which is the mixture of proteins found in wheat.

Clarify if roast suckling pig is the same as crispy skin roasted pig?
