offering authentic yet super affordable and filling portions with a vast menu that's
perfect for groups or families. I've been here a few times already and wanted to share my experience.
I was really impressed by their 300+ menu choices and weekly specials.
If you order Ala Carte, most menu items are around the $6-$8.50 range.
Entrees include complimentary steamed white or brown rice.
If you're not that hungry, they also carry rice bowls for $4.60 (unreal deal right)?
Though the most amazing deal is their family set dinners that start at $27.
That includes your choice of a soup or vegetable dish,
along with 3 entree dishes from their big menu.
Our most favorite dinner set is their Hong Kong Dinner Set (pictured below).
One of their many Dinner Sets available:
All sets come with a choice of soup
(family-size; much bigger than in my individual portion shown above).
The Hong Kong Set Dinner includes:
- Bring your own Seafood -
While the restaurant does not offer opulent seafood items on their standard menu,
the very best part is that you can actually bring in your own seafood purchased that day separately.
If it's under 2 pounds, they will clean and cook it for a fee of $7 each
(+$2 surcharge for additional vegetables, proteins, rice or noodle).
The possibilities are quite generous with your choice of sauce and preparation style:
We picked up our very own Lobster and Dungeness Crab from the nearest Asian supermarket and was in for a feast!
One thing to note is that they are super generous with garlic in all of their dishes.
So if you are a garlic lover like I am-- its perfect. Otherwise you might want to ask them to tone it down.
I enjoyed all of their different dishes thoroughly, so much that I just may never need to to cook my own
Chinese food ever again because I can just come here. ;)
