Rating: Elite Dimsum
I last went to World Seafood almost 2 years ago for dim sum but recently one of the Elite managers, Derek, came over to World Seafood and brought with him one of the Elite chefs. Because of the new kitchen and management I’ve decided to write a new from scratch review. Then about 2 years later Yarom, my brother and I hit it up again and it’s still great.
They have a much bigger space than Elite and gave us an elaborate private room.
Chicken feet in house sauce. Not my thing, but some like it.
Shrimp and Chinese Chive Dumpling. What’s better than shrimp dumpling? Shrimp with Chive!
Fun guo, or Chaozhou fun guo sometimes spelled fun quor, fun gor, fen guo, Chiu Chow dumpling, Teochew dumpling, or fun kor is a variety of steamed dumpling from the Chaoshan area of coastal eastern Guangdong, a province in Southern China.
Scallop and shrimp dumplings.
Sautéed pea tendrils with garlic. A nice version because lots of garlic.
Fried shrimp rice noodle. Excellent.
Macau pork. Pan fried roast pork. Tasty!
Macau Style Roast Pork Belly (2/7/20). Delicious. Different than it was a few years ago.
Fried Chicken Cartilage with Garlic. Crunchy and the garlic was great. Chewy insides.
Roast Duck. Nice and juicy. Served with sweet sauce.
Seafood Chow Mein. Those crispy little noodles I love soaked in a seafood sauce. Great noodle dish.
Milk buns with custard. Also good. They have a lot of interesting Chinese desserts here but we were full.
Plus I had brought my own homemade dessert: PeaNutella & Jelly Frenzy Gelato – Peanut Butter base layered with everyone’s mob crazy spread and strawberry jelly. Plus bonus peanut butter cookies!
Overall, World Seafood has now leapt into the top SGV dimsum houses. It’s very much like Elite (wonder why) and super yummy. Big menu of with all sorts of Cantonese treats. Their banquet is great too.
As of 2/7/20 I still thought World Seafood was very good, in the “A level” of SGV dimsum. Big menu, interesting stuff, fresh, piping hot, and all that goodness.sharethis_button(); ?>
