Lobster Cantonese NY style?

ERMDHI Feb 5, 2011 11:38 AM

Does Anyone know where I can get this in Oahu? Always cooked in various ways but not NY style.

    If you are referring to NY style as having an entire lobster boiled and served intact in contrast to lobster being served as chopped into smaller pieces and cooked with a black bean or ginger sauce, is what I'm guessing you're referring to as Cantonese style, than Fook Yuen in the McCully Shopping Center, Chin's Chinese Restaurant on Maunakea Street in Chinatown or Lobster King on King street, next to Piikoi.

      New York City Style Lobster Cantonese is:

      Cut Up Maine Lobster

      Start with Minced Garlic
      Ground Pork
      Add Lobster
      Chicken Stock
      Cornstarch Slurry
      Broken Egg
      Green Onions.

      Fermented Black Beans and Oyster Sauce additions are a variation of the dish.

        Haven't heard of Maine cut lobster with ingredients described as "NY" style, rather Chinese or Cantonese style.

          NYC...as in how it would be made in this area in most Chinese restaurants.....and presumeably what the OP is looking for . Not any of your versions.

          It's simply refered to as Lobster Cantonese....a white sauce. In Boston, it would be brownish, witht the addition of FBB and Oyster Sauce.

        Is that Southern Chinese style or Eastern New York Chinese style or Eastern New York Southern Chinese style? I'm sure that I'm somewhat obtuse, but what do you mean? Done how?
