Birmingham - Red Pearl Restaurant

Dax | Sep 5, 2007 07:42 AM

I've been to the Red Peal Restaurat attached to the Super Oriental Market about 5 times now. I've had the beef with jalapenos (good, better cold actually, especially wrapped in scallion pancakes with more chili garlic), chicken with three spices & basil sauce (ok but boring) the green onion (scallion) pancake multiple times (from freezer section in store, ok but greasy in a mostly good but bad for you way), and pork, baked tofu and bamboo shoots (better than the chicken, not as good as the beef, but still pretty good, especially as I am not a huge tofu guy). When fellow hound gyp and I went, we had a whole fish dish, either the steamed tilapia in brown sauce or the fried tilapia in hot bean sauce (I think this was it?) which was just ok as well. We also had some type of vegetable. I forgot what else. Overall, that meal (excluding company) was overwhelmingly meh. What am I missing? I guess maybe it would help if I went with someone who spoke Mandarin or Cantonese. Help me out hounds, I really want to like this place and so far it has the most potential of all the "Chinese" places I have tried here.

On a side note, if you know of any places in he area (please don't suggest Atlanta) that specialize in more regional/provincial Chinese cuisine, please let me know.
