Rating: Great Cantonese banquet
I last went to World Seafood almost 2 years ago (for dim sum) and being that Cantonese Restaurants are basically two in one (dim sum and dinner) I was psyched to try it with master orderer Tony Lao for dinner.
There was a ton of wine, but I’m not cataloging it because I tragically had a weird camera malfunction and most of the photos are from Yarom’s phone — yes, these are not my photos, and so not as sharp — but they will do.
And look, they individually plated it (like most of the dishes). Incredible. Tony gets that to happen fairly often but I’ve never had it with anyone else at the ordering helm. This was the best geoduck ever. Super tender, not over cooked, with a lovely chewy flavor.
Lettuce cups with chicken. Specially made with chicken on request. Might have had more flavor with pork, but the texture was excellent.
Special stuffed duck. Stuffed with rice and chestnuts and I don’t know what other goodies. Tasted very soft and delicious. A little like Budha’s chicken.
John and I went out for some “coffee” — if you can call this boba cookies and cream ice blended coffee — more like a milk shake.
Overall, World Seafood served up some really excellent Chinese banquet fare, and service was fantastic. Individual plating! We had some different things and they were nearly all perfectly prepared. I love this kind of dinner.
