If you’re setting your sights on some good Chinese food, look no further than Canton Seafood Restaurant on Keeaumoku Street.
The restaurant offers authentic Cantonese cuisine and continues to satisfy the appetites of locals and visitors alike. It’s not hard to tell why, as some of the eatery’s appetizing best-sellers include Shrimp Walnuts and Mayonnaise, Mongolian Beef, Kung Pao Chicken and Pork Chop with Salt and Pepper.
There’s a healthful benefit to dining at Canton, too, as the eatery prepares its dishes with less oil and salt and no MSG.
This go-to Asian dining spot welcomes you to try its inviting menu stocked with fulfilling entrees, a lot of which also are wallet-friendly.
For instance, some of Canton’s lunch specials — with over 50 items to choose from — start at just $6.99, and fans of the restaurant’s Crispy Chicken can get half a chicken for $4.99 with a purchase of one regular-priced item.
Ever heard of the phrase, “Winner winner, chicken dinner?” Well, everyone’s a winner here at Canton Seafood Restaurant, especially when they order Crispy Chicken with Oyster Sauce Cake Noodles ($9.99 regular, $6.99 July special). The flavorful meat is delicately fried until crunchy on the outside and juicy and tender on the inside. It’s then laid upon a bed of crispy cake noodles, while the savory splendor of a special oyster sauce recipe kicks it all up a notch. The dish comes with choy sum, however, if customers prefer other vegetables, the restaurant is able to accommodate.
