Yuet Lee down hill report

Victoria Libin | Mar 18, 200501:04 PM     9

I heard recently from several people that Yuet Lee was no longer good, but hesistant to believe them I ate there this past Sunday. It was truly horrid. The crab with ginger and scallions was the worse version I have had anywhere. It was overcooked and covered in a sauce that had too much corn starch and was flavorless. Pretty expensive at $24 for a relatively small crab. For $2 less I had a perfect version at Great Eastern a month before. The salt and pepper squid was rubbery, underspiced, with an oily batter. Also the worst version of this dish I have had. Peashoots were turning brown and overcooked. The only decent dish were the giant oysters with oyster sauce.

This is for sure my last time there because at the end you can have a much better meal at Great Eastern a few blocks away for about 10% more in cost.
