King Wah Seafood - Daly City - Report
- Dave MP Oct 8, 2008 04:52 PM
Ate at King Wah Seafood last night and shared a pretty good meal. I don't know if we ordered the best things, but it seemed like preparation was good, using high quality ingredients. Beef with wilted vegetables (bok choi) was a bit on the salty side, but the beef was tender and flavorful, and the bok choi was cooked perfectly (not too soft).
We also ordered a special steamed tofu and seafood dish that I saw on the next table. Presentation was nice - lots of soft tofu, shrimp, scallops and fake-crab meat steamed in a banana (?) leaf in a bamboo steamer. The flavor was very light and subtle, so I didn't love it, but if you like this kind of thing it would have been great.
I would like to go back and try the shrimp with lobster sauce since I bet they would do it well.
Total bill for 2 people (and more than enough food) was $23.71
Nice atmosphere overall, several families eating on a Tuesday night. Apparently they have dim sum in the mornings, 7 days per week.

My friends and I enjoyed dim sum at King Wah. The BBQ pork crepe and shrimp stuffed eggplant were exceptional. The special dish we ordered (rather than selected from the cart) was 'clams in XO sauce rice noodle hong kong style'. Crisp triangles of friend rice vermicelli noodles embraced clams and bountiful mushrooms of several varieties. A visual and flavorful pleasure. A side bonus of King Wah is that parking is easy. It is in the small mall near the large Westlake Shopping Mall. No need to circle around for 15 minutes finding parking in SF.
