Chinese-American lunch specials, coming up!

The SF Chinatown Chowdown Lunch Series #4 was held on 4/2 at Capital Restaurant. Thanks again to all the participants.

For our party of nine ravenous hounds, Melanie ordered an 8 person, $58 banquet menu, and added on three dishes:

Banquet items ($58):
- seafood with bean curd soup
- squid and shrimp sauteed in wine sauce
- clams in black bean sauce
- boiled chicken with scallion oil
- fresh crab with ginger and scallions
- dried bean cake with beef stew in clay pot
- minced garlic with chinese mustard greens
- steamed catfish in black bean sauce
Additional items:
- fried chicken wings ($5.25)
- salted fish and pork ($5.95)
- preserved vegetables with pork and bean curd ($6.25)

After steamed rice, tax, and tip, the total was $108 or $12 per person.

A round of desserts--coconut macaroons, coconut tarts, and egg custard tarts from Golden Gate Bakery--were provided compliments of Derek and Karen.

So, hounds, what did you think? Everyone share.

About the SF Chinatown Chowdown Lunch Series

Each week an ever changing group of hounds lunch at a Chinatown restaurant. We focus primarily but not exclusively on Chinese cuisines. All types of hounds are welcome to attend: veteran chowdowners or newcomers; experts in Chinese cuisines or those just starting to discover them. Seats for each lunch will be allotted on a first come, first serve basis to those on a mailing list being maintained especially for these lunches. If you would like to be added to that list for future lunches in this series, email and you will be given further instructions.

The SFCCLS are private, volunteer assisted events. No agency relationship, express or implied exists between any parties and Chowhound, Inc. These are not Chowhound, Inc. sponsored events.
