Gold Mountain reveiw

I always felt that San Francisco Cantonese food was the one area that can compete with Los Angeles Chinese cuisine. This was well-confirmed by Gold Mountain restaurant. This food was good!
We were here for a wedding. The stars were crispy walnut shrimp, combination platter of barbecued pork and crispy skin, the cracked garlic lobster, and the superstar--blackened cod. The cod was amazing. It was one of the very rare times in a Chinese restaurant that an entire fish was filleted, then served. It was perfectly cooked, with the middle flesh a little soft,tender, and moist. The outside was charred like chau siu, marvelously sealing the flavor. I couldn't believe cod could be this tender and delicious! All the other dishes were good to very good, but the fish was perfect. The restaurant is in need of updating and the service is adequate at best, but the food reminded me of what really good Cantonese food can be like. Yum!
