King’s Seafood Restaurant

Another great discovery for Fine Cantonese cuisine in Chinatown … King’s Seafood …. a very fine replacement for the defunct Nice restaurant … the menu comprising: Beijing duck, jumbo prawns with walnuts and broccoli in a mayo sauce, Hong-Kong style T-bone steak (medium rare), half-chicken in garlic sauce, salt-and-pepper pork chops, the whole flounder done two-ways, chicken chow-mein, beef chow-fun, saute “dao-miu” with garlic … duck meat with green chives …. a very sumptuous dinner for everybody to enjoy … for less then $30 a person…bring your own wine or champagne …
I also went there to try their dim-sum lunch …. very, very good food and service but 2.5 times more expansive then Chatham ….
