Live Abalone at Koi Palace

Porthos | Aug 13, 2006 05:30 AM

Abalone fans should head on over to Koi Palace. They have 2 tanks of live abalone. The large go for $20 each and small go for $15 each. We had 4 preps tonight. Our favorite preps were:

1. steamed abalone with ginger and onions
2. sauteed abalone slices with yellow chives and sugar peas
3. steamed abalone in garlic sauce
4. The soy sauce abalone (by far the least favorite prep)

Mom thought the small abalone were more tender which may be just barely so since both the large and small were very tender.

There were also 3 more live black cod/sablefish/butterfish left after we ordered ours for those who like steamed black cod. Of course, the roasted pork and peking duck 2-ways was also excellent.

They also comped us some mango jello and a clear brown jello with logans that was pretty good.
