The Many Tastes of the Sea

The ocean is a mysterious environment, filled with millions of creatures that swim, crawl or spurt through its open vastness. What seafood lovers have come to learn is that regardless if these ocean residents harbor in warm tropical waters or call the dark, frigid temperatures of the deep sea home, there are many that can be absolutely delicious once they find their way to our plates.

As you may know, the top crab of the sea is arguably the Alaskan King Crab, and if you come at the right time, Panda Cuisine will have these delectable mammoth crabs for you to try. Priced at $49.99 per pound, the Alaskan King Crab, aside from being a meal in itself, is a good source of protein with very little calories. The snow-white meat is unparalled, especially when steamed with garlic as Panda Cuisine does. Alaskan King is not readily available at Panda Cuisine, so calling ahead is a wise decision.

A seafood dish that is a regular on Panda Cuisine’s menu is Salt and Pepper Squid ($8.99). Very lightly fried, diners will be able to undoubtedly taste the fresh squid rather than layers of batter. There also are more than 70 items on Panda Cusine’s lunch menu (from 11 a.m. to 4:45 p.m.), all priced at $7.99 each, which come with soup of the day and steamed rice.

Panda Cuisine also has a late-night menu (10 p.m. to 1 a.m.), with seafood, meat and vegetable dishes priced at $10 or less.
