Pleasure at Huong Que (Four Sisters)

Harlan | Apr 27, 2003 11:37 PM

Two dishes we ordered tonight for the first time at Huong Que (Four Sisters) at the Eden Center were special.

The crispy filet of sea bass in black bean sauce is item 1 on the specialties list. I normally avoid crispy fish because I have a thing about eating fish with bones in it, and even when I've tried it, once I've picked the bones out, I've found there to be too much crisp and not much meat. The sea bass is only lightly crisped, juicy, and light, and in flavor much what I expected caramel fish to be before I ordered it and found it not to my liking. This black bean sauce is not salty, as it often can be.

The goat hot pot comes with a platter of greens for cooking in the pot and noodles for placing into your bowl ahead of the soup. There is also a plate of lime wedges and salt with chili sauce mixed in, to flavor the dish to taste. The goat is pretty meaty, though you have to maneuver it to eat around the central bone in each piece. The broth is profound.
