Chinese Special #1 – South China

Egg Flower Soup at South China

Egg Flower Soup at South China

On my visit to South China, I ordered the special along with my family. What this includes is soup, appetizers, and three different plates along with fried rice.

The first item on the course was egg drop (flower) soup with fried chow mein noodles. It is pretty much a standard soup, but it tastes excellent. It’s not gooey or watery, just right.

The next items were the appetizers. There were three egg rolls, six chicken pot stickers, and six fried chicken wings. These three were pretty good. The picture displayed below shows a sampling of what one might get while out dining.

I hardly have had pot stickers before, but they went very well along with the sweet and sour sauce. I was delighted to eat the fried chicken, and the egg rolls were small, but delicious too.

The main course were the three plates of Chinese food and fried rice. When a group selects the special, there are just as many corresponding plates as there are as many people. For example, when a couple choose the special, they get Sweet and Sour Pork, Chicken Chow (or Lo) Mein, and fried rice. When three choose the special, they get Sweet and Sour Pork, Chicken Chow Mein, Peppered Steak, and fried rice. When four choose the special–you get the idea, an extra Chinese plate.

You get a lot of food at South China, which is a great deal for the price you pay for.

Now for the food. Since I was in a group of three, we were able to get three plates: sweet and sour pork, chicken chow mein, and peppered steak. The sweet and sour pork is pretty much as it is, sweet and sour sauce covered around breaded pork chops along with a topping of sesame seeds. The chicken chow mein is an amalgamation of bean sprouts, cabbage, carrots, crispy noodles, and, of course, chicken. The peppered steak is a simple item of thinly sliced steak sauteed with onions and bell peppers.

This meal is intended for people who want a lot of food for a great price. Also, if you dine-in regularly, the staff usually remembers what you regularly order. That is an awesome convenience for eating often there.
