Shredded Chicken with Pomelo

Jade Dynasty Seafood Restaurant is beloved for its scrumptious dim sum selection — which runs daily from 10:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. — boasting traditional and unique items. However, this Chinese restaurant churns out much more than these finger-licking favorites. In fact, it is ready to celebrate the Chinese Moon Festival with a spe cial menu, and it invites all to join in the cultural celebration.

“In the ancient world, agriculture was the most important business, and it required a great deal of manpower,” explains general manager Gary Chan. “All family members attend a sumptuous dinner and observed the biggest full moon of the year (for this festival). Why is it so important? Because it means harvest time is soon and it’s time to get ready for the cold winter.”

Jade Dynasty’s 2021 Moon Festival Special Set ($118) comes with six dishes that feeds a party of five. It will be available Aug. 30-Sept. 24, and one-day advanced notice is required.

The meal comes with Shredded Chicken with Pomelo and Pot Roasted Pork (Kau Yuk) with taro served with homemade buns. Diners can also sink their teeth into Golden Fried Shrimp Balls (a symbol of the moon), Mochi Rice in Lotus Wrap (a symbol that family sticks together), Salted Egg Cream Bun (serving as the restaurant’s alternative for moon-cake), and Braised Shiitake Mushrooms and Bamboo Mushroom with Shanghai Pak Choy.

While this special menu is available for nearly a month, be sure to act fast before it’s gone so that you and the family can enjoy this meal paired with quality time together.
