‘Watts for Dinner’: Su’s Garden for your Chinese fix
It has been more than a year since I darkened the door of Su’s Garden, and nothing has changed. Familiar faces. Same décor. Same fish in the tank? Hmmmm! Not sure about that last one.
Things got off to an appetizing start with the lettuce wraps. Ground chicken, water chestnuts, and mildly spicy seasoning served with leafy lettuce. This is a favorite dish of mine that I’ve eaten at P.F. Chang's and Pei Wei, so my expectations were high. And this dish met them. I highly recommend this appetizer.
During my July 2018 visit, I started things off with the amazing pan-fried pork dumplings. This time I got my dumpling fix with the amazing wonton soup.
For his main dish this visit, my partner in dine ordered the “Su’s Garden Flaming Steak Kew,” a ribeye steak grilled to the degree you prefer served with “Chinese vegetables.” First, the presentation is incredible and flammable. They add wine sauce near the table on a serving tray, then light it on fire.
So, this dish comes with a lot of vegetables and your choice of rice. The ribeye was a bit fatty but cooked to perfection and quite tasty.
I picked from the dinner combos on the back of the menu – you can choose from numerous appetizers, soup, your main dish and a small dessert. I chose the egg roll, the wonton soup and shrimp fried rice.
The egg roll was good, a bit on the dry side, but good. The fried rice was delish! Plentiful shrimp and a nice mix of ingredients. One word of caution, this dish is huge, and you will have leftovers.
During our July 2018 visit we sampled the pineapple chicken off the house specialties menu. The dish features white meat chicken – and be aware, not all the dishes do – assorted veggies with sweet and sour pineapple sauce. He considered the dish a success, but said it leaned more toward the sweet than sour side.
If you have a hankering for Chinese, Su’s offers a solid meal at a reasonable price without crossing over any bridges.
