    Fiery Sichuan cuisine may be all the rage in NYC, but Cantonese cuisine still pleases with its fresh ingredients and familiar mildness. It’s Chinese comfort food at its best. Variety is the key to enjoying a Cantonese group dinner. How not to order Chinese food? Well, have you ever seen a group of tourists, each with his or her own plate of beef and broccoli? We had winter melon soup, steak, clams, pork ribs, chicken, seafood, string beans, squash, fried rice and noodles. All for $19 each; somehow Chinese food is cheaper when eaten family-style. The seafood clay pot casserole was full of shrimp, scallop and squid, not the dyed surimi that some restaurants pass off as seafood. No crabs may be a good quality in a Craigslist date, but not in braised noodles with crab meat. Also known as e-fu, these thick egg noodles are traditionally served on birthdays as a wish for longevity. With only one dud, we still batted .900. Have an e-fully good new year. May you live long and prosper.

    Interesting, flavorful menu choices. Although I am not a huge fan of Cantonese cuisine, I may yet be a convert!
