The family behind the famous Chinese BBQ in Asiatown
While Sinh Sinh's Chinese BBQ is the most popular dish, it's the family behind the scenes that makes this place so special in the community.

HOUSTON, Texas -- Houston's Asiatown is known for its incredible food. But few places are as iconic as Sinh Sinh.

The family-owned Chinese-Vietnamese restaurant has been around for several decades and serves Chinese BBQ.

Diners love the juicy roast duck and crispy-skinned roast pork.

Sinh Sinh also offers live seafood, like king crab and spot prawns, that you can order straight from the tank.

Sinh Sinh is a family affair with multiple generations working to keep the beloved restaurant running.

"My parents are probably the most hardworking people I have ever seen," Adam Ling said. "They were working as much as they could to provide for our family. We grew up in poverty, and I find ourselves so fortunate, lucky to have parents that are so devoted to make our lives better."
