Fusion food is delicious and innovative at times, but sometimes you just want the real deal. Since Canton Seafood opened eight years ago in Chinatown, customers have delighted in its unaltered, Hong Kong-style Cantonese fare cooked mostly by chefs from the region itself. The restaurant relocated to Keeaumoku Street last April, bringing along all of its traditionally prepared menu items.
For an opportunity to try a variety of Cantonese dishes, take advantage of the eatery’s current specials. When ordering a regular priced entree, diners may add specially priced items such as Deep Fried Flounder with Seasoning Herbs ($9.99, whole) or Deep Fried Chicken ($4.99, half chicken).
Ever popular and great for sharing, the crispy flounder is served with a delectable dipping sauce, resulting in a perfect blend of flavors.
“It’s is made with soy sauce. We mix it with some garlic, chili and green onion,” explains manager Edwin Chen.
The Deep Fried Chicken special has a golden touch. “The chicken is steamed first, then deep fried for more flavor,” says Chen of the secret to the dish’s popularity. This family-style favorite comes with crispy shrimp chips for some added crunch.
So go for the real thing and try Canton Seafood’s authentic — and tasty — cuisine.
