Lesson Learned!

Dude! I need to learn a lesson about not returning to places that I know isn't good! Since I am so sick of the same old food in Irvine, we thought about changing it up a little and go to Sam Woo Seafood on Culver. Why can't I remember that this place blows!!! Hopefully with my website/post I will be able to remind myself and not have to suffer through it all! ^_^ They are your typical Chinese/Cantonese restaurant setting with white table linens and the same old chairs. We were seated immediately as it was later in the day and they aren't that busy. I regret not going to the BBQ Express side for some cheap eats that taste better. **WARNING: Food may look more delicious than it seems! Don't be deceived!**
Like most Asian places for lunch, they give you the free daily soup. The soup that day is the Cream Corn Egg Drop Soup. I really like cream corn soup Asian style, so you really can't go wrong. It's not anything special. (I put this here esp. for the Bees. ^_^) The one I make is great, but I am always lazy about that.
I made the mistake of ordering the Fish Fillet in Black Bean Sauce and Honey Walnut Shrimp lunch. The fish was bland and tasteless. It was so bad that I took one or two bites and I threw my chopsticks down... told my Mom I refuse to take another bite... and left to pick up some pastries and my cake at JJ Bakery. The shrimp was over-fried and shriveled. There was no flavor or taste. The only thing edible on that plate was the candied walnuts.
All in all it's needless to say that I detested the food since I walked out without eating anything. It's just that hard to swallow! I don't know why there is such a discrepancy between the food in the BBQ and the Seafood side. To be honest the food isn't all that great or much better than the Seafood side, but I love my 3 BBQ Mix with Rice. That's all I need or just the Wonton and Noodle Soup. Cheap and good! Sam Woo Seafood is definitely not that!

I call this place sam "poo"... The MSG in the dishes is not optional. =( Sorry about your experience.

Haha you are funny! Thanks so much for reading! Even the MSG in these dishes couldn't have saved the flavor. It was so nasty. =*( Good thing I keep this blog to remind me to never go there again, but I will still go back when I get BBQ cravings... but only on the express side.

Yes, I've reminded myself never to go back there too for a sit down meal, it's sooooo not good! One of the bees commenting! When are you cooking for the Bees? ;) Have fun in SF, eat some extra for me!!!
