Lion Pavilion - my two cents......

Scribbler | Apr 26, 2001 09:49 AM

We had our second trip there last Saturday. I know recent chow-reviews have been uneven about this place, but to my unsophisticated palate, this was the best Chinese food I have ever eaten in my life. We ordered the Seafood Hot and Sour soup, which was sublime, filled with chunks of lobster and shrimp. We kept saying we would take most of the huge bowl home to enjoy for lunch the next day, but we kept on eating it until it was gone! The shredded chicken in sesame vinagrette has been discussed here and was SO fine.....Hubby had the scugilli in roasted hot pepper sauce (hot and good). For entrees we had scallops in garlic sauce and camphor tea-smoked duck - which my duck-hating husband would not leave alone! I can't wait to go back. I may break my stand of not dining out on Mother's Day if they will take me there. And, as the first time, we were the only non-Asians in the place (always a good sign).
