Thursday night my sons took us out for dinner at Parc Hong Kong in Sunnyvale. I was following up a lead that a non chowhound eating buddy of mine gave me a couple of months ago. But I have not posted because I could not check it out for myself. The service is Hong Kong high end type. They change the plate three or four times and we had tea pot and water glasses filled several times during the meal.
The second and third chefs of R&G have moved out of the city and settled in Sunnyvale. The Manager who I have known at his third place of business told me the full story. The owner of R&G is the head chef who has design the menu and the dishes but these two chefs have done most of the cooking at R&G in the past few years.
I ordered the famous salt and pepper crab. The batter was as thin as I remember it and it was done perfectly. But the salt and pepper was a little light in favor. (I am getting over a little cold so my taste buds may be a little off
Here is part of the menu
Peking Duck whole served with the skin and little meat on buns, with the bones served by itself. On Thursday night special for $10.00 Tuesday and Thursday this special is offered.
Salt and Pepper Crab was on sale at this time for $13.00, which is about half of R&Gs price. We can get four for the price we normally pay for two.
Garlic Pea Spouts
Double Cooked Soup of the day which is $8.00m Very good but not free like in Chinatown.
Crab Meat Yee Foo Noodles $12.00
Spare rib clay pot. Shanghai style I can not think of the name right now.
The meal was only $69.00 before tip.
We had enough food left over after four heavy eaters, with a lot of take home.
I asked the Manager if the chef could do a New Years type dinner for me a some friends at a later date not during New Years. He said that he could after I show him. So I plan to check the past postings to see what others have had. Of course I asked about the service charge for wine $10.00 per table no matter how many bottles. He surely does not read Chowhound so he will not know about how many bottles we will drink.
Maybe a site for a chow down at a later date.
