A heads up for those who might be interested.
A friend from NorCal is in town and went recently, gave it good marks. It has been opened only a week and packed to the gills. This friend is far far more unrelenting and particular about Cantonese than I am…
Unfortunately Yelpers only care about dim sum, but from what I’ve seen the dinner pictures of my friend looks good. Roast suckling pig, winter melon soup (in whole winter melon), pan fried sole (bone in), beef short ribs over pan fried rice noodles (mifen) appears to be a signature, also egg white dried scallops fried rice. (Unclear what was special ordered if any)
Not sure where the executive chef (for dinner) came from before but he seems legit and has good experience. He’s friends with a very well respected former executive Cantonese chef up here, so this Tang Gong chef could be a bit of a veteran in the industry. I suppose…don’t compare the food to Hong Kong, but if you are not super picky, it does look quite decent.
Friend also mentioned the executive chef does great lobster dishes, the stir fried rendition looks decent too.
Might be a good change of pace from places like Longo. A potential candidate for a wine dinner gathering too for those out there who like to live it a little. Please kindly report back if you end up trying dinner there.
