Amazing 66

So I finally got around to trying Amazing 66 after reading Brian S's post (would've responded to it, but for some reason I couldn't find that post). So we had three dishes (wanted more, but there were only 3 of us):
- dry sauteed string beans w/ pork
- pork belly casserole
- steamed crab with XO sauce over rice

The best dish was the casserole, which i thought was excellent. It came in a clay pot full of tender fatty pork belly covered in a thick brown sauce with tons of pickled vegetables covering the pork; really great dish. The dry sauteed string beans were typical, I'd say they were decent, but not great. I was a little disappointed with the crab, the crab was fine, just a little plain (really just tasted like steamed crab without sauce), the rice looked amazing as it had been steamed with the crab, but it was just sticky w/o much flavor. That said I saw some dishes at the other tables that look really good, so I'm looking forward to trying to Amazing 66 again to try the other dishes which I'm sure are great. Thanks for the rec.
