took the family out for mother's day dinner at china village in albany on solano avenue... after all the comments on this blog, i expected something solid. but alas, it was not so.
we ordered the braised crab, the house specialty fish soup with the "thousand" peppers, the sea cumcumber and fish belly, the pork shoulder, the combination fried rice, prawns and honey walnut, spicy eggplant and shrimp in clay pot, tea-duck, and chicken with black mushroom...
maybe it was due to the fact that it was a sunday, or it was mother's day, or it was busy, or just because the sun was still out? but everything was super salty... not only were the sauces and/or broth salty, but also the ingredients... for example the thousand pepper fish fillet soup with glass noodles, not only was the broth salty--the saltiness was permeated throughout the pieces of fish fillet... the servers were courteous but a little hectic...
after this let down, should i try this place again?
