Capital Restaurant - New Year's Night

gordon wing | Feb 18, 2007 08:53 PM

Mom decided to take a break from cooking this year .... we went to Capital tonight. Ordered the $48 meal and added the chicken wings, gai lan (chinese broccoli) and a Buddhist Casserole (New Year's dish). The house soup was one of the better house soups I've had in awhile - a nod to the New Year: pork bones, seaweed (faat choy), bean curd sticks and dried oysters. The $48 wo choy dinner has the House Soup, spare ribs, fried flounder, steamed chicken w/gravy, fried shrimp, squid with mustard greens and a casserole with tofu, mushrooms and baby bok choy. I think that I got it all. Oranges for dessert - looked a bit pale but were very sweet. Service was very good. No surprise that the chicken wings were a table favorite.... the Buddhist Casserole was OK but nothing like the version my Grandmother used to make ... but it was New Year's afterall. Overall, a good reliable place for Chinese comfort food. The kids kept on looking at the waffle irons on the counter waiting for breakfast customers....
