another happy Parc Hong Kong tale

Windy | Dec 29, 200409:34 PM

Driving back from Cambria last night (full report below), we were disappointed to find Fiesta Tepa-Sahuayo in Watsonville closed. Remembering Yimster and Autumn's Christmas posts, I talked my companion into stopping at Parc Hong Kong.

I'd been to Parc Hong Kong for dim sum but never for dinner. The restaurant was empty when we arrived at 5:30 and still half empty by the time we left. Service couldn't have been more gracious and attentive. And the food is a ridiculously good deal. Yes, those roasted peanuts with anchovies on the table are addictive!

We had the Tuesday special, Peking Duck for $9.99 plus a salt and pepper crab and a huge steaming plate of Chinese broccoli sauteed with garlic. The duck was enough for a family of four. The skin was nicely crisp, and the bird was so meaty. Not a high end preparation like at HK Flower Lounge, but tasty and quite a bargain. The crab was enormous; lightly battered with lots of jalapenos and salt. Succulent and perfect. We devoured all of it. Our plates were changed several times. I thought the finger bowls were a nice touch.

We were brought warm cookies with the check for dessert, and then complimentary bowls of sweet red beans. I'm not a bean eater, but I slurped these down.

Total for a feast and enough for two lunches was $44 with a generous tip. Lots of intriguing choices on the newly printed fancy menus--everything from abalone to lobster. Too late, I noticed spot prawns swimming in the tanks; they're available for $20 a pound. Next time.

Parc Hong Kong is on Lawrence Expressway between El Camino and 237 in Sunnyvale. Thanks to Yimster for another great dinner recommendation.
