Painted on the window of this nondescript highway-side restaurant is its specialty: "Chinese B-B-Q." And sure enough, hanging inside the door are bright red-dyed whole roast ducks (beaks and all) and the rest of the rotisserie items one would expect to find in any major U.S. city's Chinatown. But the real news is: There are four live tanks, making this humble joint possibly Miami-Dade County's only Chinese restaurant where fish and shellfish are alive and swimming until seconds before they're cooked. The clientele is mostly Asian, and the food is the real thing. Winning choices include fresh clams with black bean sauce, salt-and-pepper softshell crab, and live lobster with ginger and green onion.
