Chinatown restaurant with great seafood.
This newly spruced-up restaurant in the Chinatown Mall offers dishes from all over the map—and off it as well. Theres a Pork Chop With Thousand Island Sauce that sounds like an Italian futurist dreamed it up. But Ken Kee doesnt overreach. It does many, many things very well, from standards like beef with broccoli to 24 variations on simple congee to more interesting creations like the five-spice lotus root with Chinese sausage and bacon, and endlessly fascinating combinations of ingredients like duck tongues and baby pea tips. It would take months to work through the menu, but if seafood is a good benchmark to measure a busy kitchens standards, Ken Kee's are high: the fried smelt special, battered and dressed with chiles, was unbelievably fresh.
