Soft Shell Crabs Midtown East/Murray Hill
We tried Phoenix Garden for the first time Monday night. I had noticed that they made Chow Fun with black bean paste which I love and don't see on many menus. It was excellent!!
There were only two of us so we did not get to mix and match many menu items.
Soft shell crabs were n the special menu but we did not order them. Our table neighbor ordered them and they looke fabulous. "Great" according to him.
Very interesting menu with standard and out of the ordinary items. Several offerings on the special menu made me wish we had come with a large group.
We had the special appetizer "Steamed scallop" which was perfectly cooked and very tasty.
We did not expect such a nice dining room as the enterance is rather tiny and drab. Superb service too!! We'll be back with a larger group to have a taste of more menu choices.
