Ling Kee Beef Jerky: Around the corner from the East Broadway subway stop on the edge of Manhattan's Chinatown is a small shop called Ling Kee Beef Jerkey (sic). The shop sells pork, chicken, and beef jerky by 1/4, 1/2, or lb sizes, each laid out in stacks under a bright heatlamp. The shop specializes in Malaysian Jerky, which I hadn't had before but remind me a lot of Taiwanese beef jerky, which is nothing like American packaged jerky. Typically, asian jerky is moist, with a glistening, sweet glaze rather than dried seasonings that characterize brands like Jack Links. The jerky at Ling Kee is consistently cut; thinner than store-bought American jerky and available in square slabs. The beef jerky was ultra delicious, with a flavor reminiscent of roasted pork but with the meaty, rich flavor of beef. At $5.50, they beat any store-bought, pre-packaged jerky by miles. Definitely worth a try. 4.5/5.0
