A Go-To for Chiou Chow Chow

Das Ubergeek reports that the Rowland Heights edition of Seafood Village is worth the trip.

Start with tea and nibble on boiled peanuts and salted pickle. The shrimp and vegetable course features savory gai lan and juicy, peeled shrimp. The ong choi is just delicious; its red sauce resonates with pork and butter. Chiou Chow porridge is tasty—like exploded rice sunk in a delicious broth, but with plenty of seafood.

The crab arrived lightly battered and deep-fried, then tossed with sesame seeds, chiles, and fried scallions. At $6.99 a pound prepared, this is a chowlicious bargain. Sweet soup of beans and tapioca in coconut syrup finished the meal. Chiou Chow cuisine is one of the few regional Chinese cuisines that include dessert at the end of a meal.

Take-home leftovers were fine warmed up. The tab was $66 for three adults with enough left over to feed three again and still have some porridge for another breakfast.
