South Garden, new Chinese seafood at Kam Man?

I was at Kam Man Saturday, picking up lovely live tiplapia and delicious salmon steaks for dinner. Really, Super88's fish doesn't even come close...
Anyway, I noticed a new seafood resto there, where the Honey Bee Cafe, or whatever that little karaoke place was. Next to the Vietnamese place. Big seafood tanks, cooks meal, which they were sharing, looked delicious. I only had time to pick up a take-out menu,. but even the English version had lots of interesting sounding goodies; four different preps for conch, four different ones for eel, etc...Anyone been yet? Slade?

  1. We were there on a Sunday night a couple weeks ago. The restaurant was packed. We were lucky to get a table very fast as most people waiting were of big parties and there were only me and my husband.

    We got:
    1. Pi Pa Dou Fu (fried meshed dou fu);
    2. Salt and pepper squid;
    3. Sweet and sour pork.

    All the dishes were very good. It was also a lot of fun for us as we sat at a high table overseeing all the dishes that other people having.

    Definately will go back but beware of the wait.

      I noticed a number of untranslated menus...How different were they from the English only, or did you notice?

    2. Was there a couple of weeks ago on a Tuesday for lunch, not crowded at all.
      Had the tom yum soup and the scallion pancake, one of the best I've ever had. Also. Filipino cuisine is coming to Quincy!, occupying the space Sure Pinoy market was in before moving next door, this in the block on Water st. before the bridge over Burgin Pkway/Red Line tracks. They're not open yet, and I'm not sure what Filipino food is like, but I'm gonna find out as soon as they open.

          Not sure when they're going to open, windows are decorated, bamboo like blinds completely cover the windows and door so you can't see in, makeshift sign over the old Sure Pinoy awning. The name of the place is JNJ Turo Turo Filipino Cuisine.

          please do report back on the filipino place. i'd love to hear about that one.

            That sounds great. There used to be a Filipino place in Quincy Center, but it closed before I had a chance to try it. Please let us know when you've had a chance to try this new one.

          2. Haven't been yet and by a couple of responses, I'll be more motivated to try but, it will be at least a couple of weeks as I'm on vaca and out of town.

            1. Was there few times, the seafood is very good. Comparable to Chinatown, I heard the chef used work at Pearl Villa in Chinatown.

                  Try the hunan chicken, it is one of the best I ever had.

              2. Any new reports on South Garden in Quincy?
