Seafood Paradise (NOT Palace, Cove, World, etc.) follopw-up

Took in-laws to what turned out to be dim sum at this OC location, and ended up arriving about 12:30, which was pretty late to arrive for dim sum.

Over-all not at subtle or delicate as Ocean Star or NBC on a good day; this might have been the time of day. Still pretty good. Seemed to be much more fried stuff than I'm used to. Didn't try the roast duck; looked a little tired on the cart. Not bad for OC; price for 5 was about $70.

I also noticed,for the benefit of OC resident hounds, their weekday luch special menu. You know, the one that many Chinese restaurants have had versions for many years, with soup, rice, maybe a fried wonton, and an entree, now about $3-$6 depending on locale and on whether shrimp or scallops are involved. What got my attention was that, instead of the standard dozen-20 (you can name'm: kung pao, brocoli beef, orange chicken mapo tofu....) there are 99 SELECTIONS on the lunch special menu. Sounds like a challenge...

On to Seafood COVE next time.
