Cold Ginger Chicken and Sweet & Sour Pork

Canton Seafood Restaurant is known for its high-quality, reasonably priced Chinese cuisine. And, starting this month, the eatery is offering customers even more to rave about through its new lunch specials ($8.99 each).

Customers can now select one entree from “Category A” and another from “Category B” to create a well-rounded feast, according to manager Henry Gong.

“Our regular lunch special originally only came with one item,” he explains, “but now, customers can have two so they can taste more from our menu. Our new lunch special is a good deal for two entrees, and it’s available for all of September.”

Category A includes items such as Cold Ginger Chicken, Canton Crispy Chicken, Steamed Sea Bass Fillet with Ginger & Onion and Pork Chop with Salt & Pepper. The last item especially is a customer favorite.

“Most of our Chinese customers say our pork chop is the best in town,” Gong states. “It’s crispy and tender on the outside, but juicy and tender on the inside.”

Category B features items such as Kung Pao Chicken, Sauteed Shrimp with Vegetables and Sweet & Sour Pork. But, if customers have a specific preference, Canton Seafood Restaurant is happy to accommodate them.

“We offer Mongolian Beef as an entree under Category B, but if customers don’t like beef, they can get Mongolian Chicken or Pork instead,” Gong explains. “We’re usually known for our Mongolian Beef, but we’re versatile. We’re here to serve the customer.

“If customers don’t want a rice plate, we also have a wide variety of noodle dishes ($6.99-8.50) available for lunch,” he adds.

Additionally, starting this month, organic choy sum will be available at Canton Seafood.

“We’re trying to order organic vegetables; our food is fresh and healthy, with less oil and no MSG,” Gong summarizes.
