Seafood Feast and a Sunday Cephalopod

Filed under: — stan @ 9:45 pm

This evening we went down to meet my Chinese family for dinner. Uncle Hsin always knows where the best Chinese restaurants are, and it’s always a fun time to have dinner with them.

This time we went to New Capital Seafood in Rowland Heights. It’s the usual Chinese seafood restaurant, with big tanks by the door with fish, crabs, shrimp, lobsters and various other captured marine life awaiting their fate. I remember always being fascinated by the live fish when I was kid, and Lucinda is interested in looking at them, too. She doesn’t like actually eating them just yet, but she still finds them interesting.

One of the dishes we got was squid, which was the Sunday Cephalopod. It was fried with lots of garlic. It was tasty and all, and I made a lame attempt at assembling an entire squid on my plate for a photo opportunity.

My always favorite thing since I was a kid is when we get Peking Duck. Sadly, Lucinda has not developed a taste for this. But she likes the rice chips that it comes served on, so it’s not a total waste for her. We also had a lobster and a steamed fish, which she didn’t like either. I can’t remember how old I was before I developed a taste for fish. I think I was about 10, so there’s time. And she’s learning to use chopsticks now.

Overall, it was a fun time.

    Sounds like a blast. Kids and sea creatures…I once gave Sky $20 to eat an entire fried squid when he was ten. I know….

    Sage loves to gross me out in the restaurant by pulling apart the crawfish, etc. and eating it in front of me. He’s only seven and he already knows how to get my goat. One nice thing about seafood and kids is that going to the grocery store is like going to a small zoo, especially if it is an Asian one with live crabs and so on.
