Chinese Food Los Angeles

Meals don’t get more enjoyable than Sunday dinners in the San Gabriel Valley. Restaurant options are nearly unlimited, traffic’s lightest, and friends are normally happy to make the trek to feast at Chinese restaurants. One of my favorite recent experiences was at Seafood Village, a Chiu Chow style restaurant from Zhao Ming Situ that also has a branch in Temple City. The space features photos of dish on the walls, star-bright fluorescent lighting, and little in the way of charm, other than what’s topping plates and bowls.

My recent meal consisted of wok-fried Dungeness crab with garlic and scallions, braised oxtails with fibrous lily bulbs, chow fun with preserved meat and gailan, winter melon soup, braised duck with tofu, and best of all, Snow Fish with Garlic Sauce ($16.99).

The beautiful, golden, skin-on fillets were moist, flaky and practically melted in my mouth. A squeeze of lemon helped to cut the richness of the garlic-infused snow fish, which is no known species, but could possibly be escolar or sablefish, based on internet lore. Even if the fish’ ID remains unknown, Seafood Village still delivered a great result befitting their name.
