Graduation season is in full swing, and there’s no better place to celebrate than at Canton Seafood Restaurant. The popular eatery offers families a variety of party menus to choose from, suitable for any budget and craving.
According to manager Henry Gong, the $198 menu is widely adored because of the variety it offers and the fact that it feeds 10-12 people.
“It’s a very good price for nine courses,” Gong states. “This menu is for one big table and comes with: Seafood Tofu Soup; a whole Peking Duck; Live Lobster with Ginger & Onion; Steamed Sea Bass Fillet with Ginger & Onion; Tenderloin Steak with String Beans; a whole Crispy Garlic Chicken; Black Mushrooms with Vegetables; fried rice; and our dessert of the day.”
The lobster is available in several different flavors, including ginger and green onion, salt and pepper, black bean sauce and butter garlic. Gong says having this as part of the party menu is a great deal for seafood lovers.
“Our Chinese customers like the ginger and green onion flavor, while locals prefer the salt and pepper,” he says.
“Our Steamed Sea Bass is served with ginger and green onions,” Gong adds, noting that “it’s popular because it’s healthier — not too oily. Also, our fried rice has shrimp, char siu — that’s barbecue pork — peas and carrots. Customers really like it.”
Canton Seafood also has party menus priced at $238, $268, $298 and $398. Gong explains that these menus include even more seafood dishes, such as live crab, abalone with black mushrooms and vegetables, walnut shrimp with mayonnaise and more.
Gong ensures that the eatery can adjust to the guest’s party-menu needs. “The customer can change out dishes on the menu,” he says.
“For example, some people don’t eat lobster, so they can switch that out. If they don’t eat seafood, they can choose another dish.
“Also, if the $198 menu is over their budget, we can work with the customer to change the menu and fit their budget,” Gong confirms. “We’re here to work with the customer.”
Interested patrons should call Canton Seafood Restaurant for reservations, regardless of which party menu they want.
“Our atmosphere is clean, and we have a good chef — we’re very focused on the quality of our food,” Gong summarizes. “Based on our food and the price, Canton Seafood is the perfect place to celebrate graduation.”
