Emerald Chinese Seafood Restaurant
Emerald Chinese Seafood Restaurant Review
Tucked away in a rather run-down looking strip mall, Emerald is nevertheless sought out by those who look for elaborate, carefully prepared, and sometimes costly seafood dishes. Even when the restaurant is full to capacity with 300 diners, the noise level is moderate and conversation flows easily among families and other groups ordering from the banquet menu. Market-priced—and that can be high—lobsters, clams, and fish reside in tanks until the moment of cooking. Simple preparations flavored with scallions, black beans, and ginger are among the most worthy. Other recommended dishes include beef with Singapore-style satay sauce, honey-walnut shrimp, baked chicken in five spices, Peking duck, and, at lunch, the dim sum.
