China Bistro in Laguna

russkar | Sep 23, 200403:30 PM

Across from the Montage Resort is a Chinese Restaurant called China Bistro #1 which has a general selection of the usual suspects.

Some of our Taiwanese friends recommended calling the owner(Eric) and requesting a "SPECIAL Chinese Style Dinner" in advance so he can buy the ingredients.

Last nights dinner started with a Large(Same day Fresh) Sashimi Platter with Hamachi, Ahi, Salmon slices, and I mean lots of fish(we couldn't finish it,next time I won't have Sushi for lunch).
Followed by Homemade Shrimp and Veggie Nori egg Rolls.
Next, Chinese Style 5lb Lobster w/XO sauce, very good sauce(one of the best anywhere).
Then very authentic Sharkfin Soup in a Giant Serving Bowl ,(enough for 10-12, we were only 6) with a whole Dungeness Crab floating in the Soup Bowl.
Followed by the BEST Fried Rice anywhere with Shrimp Prawns(melt in your mouth) and BBQ Pork slices. Everything was really good including the Price. Around 50-ea plus tip. Because of the quanities we could have had 3 or more people with us to lower the overall cost, we had lots of leftovers after over-eating. It's nice to have a restaurant that can compare to Monterey Park in Laguna.
