As you can see I know going into this, that I might be asking for something that is impossible but I thought I would take a shot at it. I am kind of prepared for some negative chowhound responses from the purists out there. So here is the deal: My husband and I keep semi-kosher, meaning we don't mix meat and dairy, we don't eat shellfish or pork, but we are not totaly kosher. I eat out at lots of restaurants that are not kosher. I would like to go out to some of the chowhound recomended authentic Chinese restaurants.
I have been to Empress Pavillion a couple years ago, and ended up drinking tea with steamed rice. The problem is everything I see or read about is dumplings stuffed with crab or shrimp or pork. Actually at Empress Pavillion, I did not even know what half of the things were that came around in the carts. Is it possible for me to eat at a really authentic restaurant like Daitafung, (I know I mispelled that), or one of those SGV or Chinatown restaurants and have a good meal within those restrictions, or am I asking for something that is impossible? Where should I go? and what can I order? I don't remember seeing much choices with chicken or fish at Empress.
Thank you all in advance for your advice and help
