Cantoon Garden

This meal originally took place on 2/21/10.

I was craving Chinese food. A quick search on Chowhound led me to Cantoon Garden, which as pictured here, goes by South China Garden Chinese Restaurant (I have no idea when they changed their sign).

The winner of the night was Salted Baked Squid. David really liked this dish. I'm guessing the squid was dipped in batter and fried; it was well seasoned and had a nice, unexpected jalapeno kick to it.

The Crispy Fried Chicken (with garlic) was decent, but the one at Congee Village is much better.

And we got the Crab with E-fu Noodle, which looked cool but was just okay.

I'd like to come back. The Chowhounders seem to love this place and there are plenty of other dishes to try.
