Phoenix Garden

I will be dining there tonight. Usually my preference is for Sichuanese or Shanghainese food or dim sum, but every now and then, some good old Cantonese is in order. Any advice or recommendations?

  1. Absolutely try the oyster and roast pig casserole--my favorite thing in the place. They do a good version of snow pea leaves with crab meat sauce too--it may be an off-menu item. Excellent Peking pork chops.

    1. ate there last night. salt and pepper shrimp app was great. they also had a whole pomfret special which we loved. another favorites was the sizzling beef.

      1. 1. bring wine--it's byob!
        2. get the sauteed snow pea leaves oh my lord in heaven delicious
        3. my husband loves their pork dumplings (shumai?)

        1. i second the salt and pepper shrimp and the byob. i've never had anything i didn't like. yummy food with good service. the family that runs it is so nice. enjoy.

          1. I haven't been there is quite a while, but they have excellent Peking Duck served as 2 courses.
