The waitresses are friendly and attentive. The lunch menu offers a good range of selections, including soup (recommend #19 the winter melon and clams soup), vegetables, pork (#49 and 51, the later has hidden diced chili to surprise your taste buds), seafood, a few beef and lamb dishes (#61 is good). You will need to pay for the steamed rice which is charged by bowls. Overall, the taste of food matches the advertising Michelin award. Food portion is smaller while pricing is a little higher if compared to the nearby restaurants in SGV. Parking spots is limited in the adjoining parking lot, but there is an additional parking in the far back.
We came early around 11:30 am and no wait on weekend. We are large group and lucky there is only 2 tables left for large group. My fav are dry spicy pork intestine pot, crab, fried fish and Shanghai baby ribs. Bitter melon with egg yolk is good too, a little more bitter than the flavor we eat. I like the way they cook. Light and not too overwhelming for sou sauce flavor. Will come again for sure to try other dishes. Price is also very reasonable too. Has small car park on the side and back. Cost about 240 for 9 people.
The food was okay. The chicken dish we ordered were all bones and very few pieces with meat on them. The beef soup was really good. The egg was silky and light. The pork belly was the best. It literally melted in your mouth. Because it's so rich and heavy that I couldn't have more than two pieces. The veggies was good, the same as everywhere else. Although the servers were very attentive to our needs, I don't appreciate them started clearing the table while I am still signing the credit receipt. For a Michelin star restaurant, I am not impressed.
- Sweet Red Bean Pancake ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Love it! Just the right amount of sweetness! If I ever visit the restaurant again, this will definitely on my order list! - Dong Po Pork ⭐️⭐️ Too much oil. The portion is really large so you probably wouldn’t want to order it unless there are 3+ people. I don’t like the pork as there’s just too much oil but the broccoli is really good 😂 although it’s not the focus of the dish - Seaweed Fried Fish ⭐️⭐️ It’s almost flavorless unless you dip the salt in a small plate that comes with the main dish. I can’t really taste any seaweed but the fish inside is tender and juicy. Just not much flavor. Service: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Environment: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
We came here because of the michelin guide sign that we have been seeing every time we pass by Alhambra. We were pretty disappointed because we were expecting more flavor on the food. The corn and chicken soup was tasteless, Xiao long bao has thick dumpling skin and very little soup, seaweed fish is tasteless. The only dish that's good was the steam fish... Parking was easy for Friday night
