Offering an extraordinary selection of freshly prepared Asian-style fish, seafood, meats, chicken, and vegetable dishes, LaGuardia Seafood Restaurant is sure to please not only the discerning palate, but a budget-conscious wallet. Perfect for parties both large and small, LaGuardia Seafood Restaurant offers tables for family seatings, or cozy, comfortable booths for two. Inside the restaurant, one finds the most visually appealing area is the extensive sushi and raw bar, which is staffed by skilled sushi chefs who prepare an incredible selection of sushi, sashimi, and dozens of varieties of rolls right in front of you.
Creating culinary magic at the dim sum table are the Shanghai-trained chefs tending to dozens of little dumplings and delicacies. Inside their steam baskets, you’ll find irresistible shrimp dumplings, pork dumplings, and small parcels of sticky rice with meat wrapped in a leaf and tied with a thread. Shrimp and egg fill the crispy golden spring rolls, and the three varieties of soup – including Ginseng soup – reflect the richness of Chinese cuisine featured at LaGuardia Seafood restaurant. Shanghai style cooking is close to perfection here at LaGuardia Seafood restaurant.
The Shanghai style of cooking is known for its minimal preparation which allows for the fresh flavors of the food to come through in virtually every bite. To start with, there’s clams cooked in a black bean sauce that is simply delicious. The deep fried fish fillet is light and crunchy. Tender fillet of flounder is gently wrapped around a generous filling of crab meat, then pan-fried until it is golden brown. For those who enjoy the tantalizing combination of sweet and savory, be sure to try the jumbo shrimp cooked in the creamy fruit sauce. If meat is more to your liking, there’s the tender short ribs of beef, sliced roast pork, breast of chicken, and so much more. As you see, the choice of mouth-watering selections appears to be endless. And maybe it is!
All served buffet style, you can help yourself to these wonderful Asian style dishes as much as you’d like for the unbelievable dinner price of $15.95 on weeknights, $21.95 on weekends.
Complement any meal with a soft drink, wine, or beer. Then complete your meal with a choice of sweets from the dessert menu.
