My husband and I finally checked out Seafood Village in Monterey Park on Sunday evening. The place was packed and luckily the air conditioning seemed up to the task.
Every table had the house special crab and since I'd read about it in the Carl Chu book on the ride over from Sherman Oaks, that was a no brainer. Wow, a lot of crab and garlic for the two of us, but really enjoyable. Husband wanted the squid with spicy salt, a decent rendition if a little short on salt and chilis, and too similar to the crab. Think I like the version at the Sam Woo on Sepulveda better. Also had chow fun with Chinese broccoli and lop cheung, very satisfying. Thankfully our water glasses were kept refilled, service was quick, bill was $33 before tip.
They brought a bowl of "white fungus" soup at the meal's conclusion, this was slightly sweet, mild and really pleasant. But I have no idea what it is, can someone help?
What else should we try at Seafood Village?
