While there is certainly a fair share of Chinese eateries around town, Canton Seafood aims to serve up something a little different. Take Golden Garlic Flounder ($17.99), for example.
According to assistant manager Helen He, this is something that you won’t typically find elsewhere. Here’s the deal: The meat from a whole flounder is fried and sprinkled with salt and pepper, and topped with aromatic crispy garlic.
He says Sea Bass Fillet with Cream Corn ($12.99) also is unique to Canton Seafood. The dish features deep-fried boneless sea bass steeped in a pool of creamed corn.
In addition to its oneof-a-kind cuisine, Canton Seafood has been making significant efforts to provide healthier options, such as Boneless Chicken with Cashew Nut ($11.99), served with mushroom, celery, snow pea and carrot.
“It’s really healthy,” says He. “We wanted to create something that was good for our customers.”
One thing that Canton Seafood has become particularly well-known for is its Canton Crispy Chicken ($4.99 special for a half chicken). Another current special is Lobster. Regularly priced at $19.99, it’s now available for $11.99 with the purchase of an entree. This seafood favorite can be prepared with ginger and green onion, black bean sauce, pepper and salt or butter garlic.
With the holidays coming up, Canton Seafood is the perfect place to host a party. The restaurant accepts reservations, and He says it’s possible to rent out the entire space. Menu options start at $188.
