A tasty lunch at Seven Seas

My husband and I enjoyed a delicious, very inexpensive (only $12 because I used my Post Rewards card!) lunch at Seven Seas Chinese restaurant on Jefferson Street in Rockville. Since their renovation, their decor is a lot more attractive - a cozy long room with reddish walls and nice votive candles on the table providing soft lighting. Their food is still great - don't let the fish tanks beside some of the tables and in the front of the restaurant unnerve and dissuade you. This is truly excellent, fresh fish. I recommend particularly the seabass, fried lightly and enough for two people, though you will have to do your own filleting. We started with the hot and sour soup which, while it could have been a little more hot and tangy, was subtly flavored and delicious. Moving on, we each ordered the shrimp Lo Mein, which was also delicious and not too oily and not too much soy sauce and just the right amount of garlic. Fortunately the portions are not too big and the shrimp were medium sized and cooked perfectly. The seabass I tried on an earlier visit for dinner. The restaurant doesn't serve coffee or have cream or milk available for tea.
