From the outside, The Roast looks as though it’s filled with roast meats. And from the inside, it also appears this way. That’s because The Roast is filled with roast meats - and that’s exactly what you come here for. The space is about the size of a budget hotel room, and there’s a counter up front where you order. You can get your honey roast duck, suckling pig, and chicken wings by the pound, but you should probably make a meal of it and add some rice or noodles. A combo of two meats over rice costs roughly $6 and even comes with some greens on the side.
