A few weeks ago, I finally made my way back to Best Taste of China to check out the late night specials.
Between 9pm and 11pm, a large number of dishes are discounted to $4.99 (portions are also reduced). They also offer all-you-can-eat hot pot for $13.99 per person.
We had a group of four and we each chose a dish.
Fish Fillet in Wine Sauce
This was our favorite of the dishes we tried. The fish pieces were so tender and soft. I don’t know how restaurants do it. The white wine sauce was subtle, adding just enough flavor.
Black Bean Beef
While this came out pretty, it was extremely salty and we had trouble finishing it.
Shrimp with Tofu
This is supposed to be shrimp with tofu but it was mainly tofu, with very little shrimp.
Pork Intestine with Jalapeno
This also was overly salty and the intestine slices were thin and overcooked, causing them to be too rubbery.
Overall, we weren’t impressed with the late night specials we had. While I loved the long list of discounted items, we only enjoyed 1 out the 4 dishes we ordered. We’ll have to find a better late night Chinese option.
