Swatow on Spadina - BEST dishes?
What are the best dishes at Swatow?
Thanks in advance
Haven't been there in a few years but I prefer their beef internals noodle. Not many places give you the variety and quantity of organs. I find the wonton noodle good but pretty standard compared to other places.
Definitely the shrimp dumplings - either as noodle soup or just shrimp dumpling soup (more dumplings).
Beef stew noodle soup and four kinds of balls are also good soups. Agree that the broth is not the strong suit.
In terms of the fried noodle dishes, we like special fried noodles, beef and black bean rice noodles, and the Singapore fried noodles particularly.
Eggplant and shrimp, clams in black bean sauce - both a bit cornstarchy but very tasty.
Scrambled egg with shrimp on rice - almost a comfort food for me.
There's a bitter melon dish that's quite good - I can't remember if it is with oysters or something else.
Agree about the fried dumplings. The fried stuffed tofu and the fried stuffed hot peppers are similarly good.
