SEA: Best Chinese Seafood?
Looking specifically for the best Chinese seafood places in and around Seattle. I'm open to all regional Chinese cuisines. Thanks!
Yea's Wok for Clams both Black Beans and Basil are great. Kung Pao Calamari(not the squid) is very good.
For Szechuan Crab, Seven Peppers and Szechuan Che are great.
Szechuan Cuisine (both Seattle & Redmond) makes a very good Kung Pao Fish.
I haven't found any that does a great job on all seafoods. I'd love to find a Cantonese restaurant that does a good Fish with Corn Sauce.
Seven Stars Pepper and Szechuan Chef. People like to say SC is better because the chef left SS, but I prefer Seven Stars. Both excellent though.
Very much enjoyed the crab with black bean sauce and salt and pepper scallops last night at Sea Garden. The crab cost about $35 (@ $15/lb), and seemed like an honest weight. The sauce was succulent and well-balanced between thickening starch and oil. The scallops were topped with an striking salty and hot relish with red and green chilies and scallions, really a great contrast to the lightly battered bivalves.
For me, in the scheme of chinese dungeness preperations, I think Szechuan Chef's szechuan crab beats out the black bean sauce version here, but the latter is very good. I've also really enjoyed ginger versions at SC and at Cantonese places in NYC. Still want to get the dry curry and/or black pepper crabs at Malay Satay.
