Restaurant Details

At Triple Crown the selection is wide, prices reasonable, and portions massive. Yet after two appetizers, three soups, and five entrees we were left ruing the blandness of Cantonese food. An exception was hot-and-sour soup with baby shrimp, tofu, and Chinese vegetables; more sour than hot, it was also rich and flavorful--one of the best I've had. Seaweed soup was light and fresh, eggdrop light and salty, fried shrimp and cuttlefish, just light. Our entrees were more of the same. The worn menus boast some adventurous choices: abalone braised and sliced with fish maw, Chinese ham with jellyfish, braised Chinese mushrooms with fish lips. But with three kids in our group of six, we dined family on fried scallops with vegetables, chicken with panfried rice noodles, deep-fried tofu, barbecue beef, and "big bowl noodle in soup," which consisted of mixed seafood, tomato, tofu, and vegetables in about a gallon of clear broth. Everything was fresh but flavorless, though the barbecue beef was sweet, at least.
