On the Lamb

Wow Barbecue truck hits the street, delivering Boston's best


Wilfork tackles. Ortiz hits. Lackey pitches (usually).

Sometimes you don't really need more than one talent. Just ask Wow Barbecue in Chinatown. They just do meat on-a-stick, and they do it professionally. 
From inside a truck, these guys serve quite possibly the only authentic BBQ lamb in Boston. And it's amazing. Pay with one hand, hold their signature skewer in the other. It's a cooked-to-order, chili pepper-coated firecracker of char-grilled deliciousness at $1.50 a pop
Somewhere along the way they developed other talents, such as applying their master-crafted kabob technique to chicken, cabbage, tofu, and quail eggs.

Considering such talent with a stick, maybe these guys ought to park closer to Fenway.
