we went to funky broome last night and ordered the yam threads "not too salty". they came not salty at all and were very delicious. I agree with Jim, they do something special with the garlic first - perhaps they steam it or marinate it.

Although our waitress didn't speak much english, she understood everything just fine, we got not too salty yam threads, the diet coke with no ice, the bowls of rice one at a time, rather than all at once, etc...

we also had fine razor clams with black beans, and also scallop noodles with xo. They were both excellent, the scallops were abundant and shockingly fresh.

the highlight for us was the sausages stir fried with preserved vegetables/lotus root/and chilis - its on the appetizer list, and I believe asimov recommended it as well.

a final note - the dishes came in the order they came. not the starter first, and not the order we ordered. if you want them in a particular order or in groups, you probably need to ask. maybe they brough them in the order they thought they should be in, and we being white barbarians, just didn't appreciate it...
