Take one thing off your to-do list for the rest of the holiday season and turn to authentic Hong Kong-style cuisine at Golden Palace Seafood Restaurant.
Golden Palace has several party platters to choose from for your Christmas and New Year’s get-togethers. Each one serves about 20 people, making it the perfect choice for office or home parties.
“I know that Christmas is here already, but everyone has a busy schedule nowadays. So regardless of if you have a big party or small family gathering, just give us a call and we can throw something together for you,” says manager Gary Lam.
A favorite is the restaurant’s Gon Lo Mein ($32), made with onions, carrots, cabbage and bean sprouts and topped with a hearty portion of char siu. Another is Golden Crispy Skin Chicken ($40), boasting a pile of marinated and fried chicken. For some variety, try the Fried Platter ($45), which comes with vegetarian spring rolls, crispy gaugee and crispy wontons. The spring rolls have chives and shredded taro tucked inside, and the gaugee and wontons are filled with pork.
If you’re really in a rush to make it to the party, a timeless favorite is dim sum ($2.69 per order), of which Golden Palace makes 40-plus varieties. This also is a fantastic idea if you are looking for a spot to host friends and family, since the restaurant has tables that can seat up to 10 people.
“One popular thing to do on Christmas or New Year’s Day is, once everyone’s done partying, or especially if your relatives are in from out of town, you come and have a big dim sum feast,” confirms Lam.
