Bow Hun - a bit disappointing

gordon wing | Jul 16, 200109:00 AM

Had dinner last night at Bow Hun. We had the fish salad, the brisket of beef clay pot, the chicken & squab clay pot, snow pea shoots, and the scallops with black bean sauce. I enjoyed the much discussed fish salad but I thought it was a bit heavy on the pepper - overwhelmed the delicate fish flavors. It was a nice salad with a good variety of textures and flavors and a good size portion - as it should be for the price, $24 or $28? Our dining companions said that Kirin ( out in the Avenues ) has a version of fish salad that they liked a bit more. The clay pots were good/OK but I thought they weren't as savory as others I've had at other places. ( last week I had the beef stew clay pot at Ocean Pearl on 781 Broadway ) The snow pea shoots were a bit undercooked for my taste. Maybe I brought in some expectations that were hightened by the recent postings about the fish salad and the clay pots .... but I left feeling a bit let down.
