King Do is kind of becoming a family favourite of ours, as there aren’t many good choices for Chinese food in Surrey, especially those that offer dim sum (and peking duck). They hosted my nephew’s baptism lunch last month, and we went back for a family lunch this past Easter weekend.
We ordered way too much food (again) – Peking Duck with Lettuce Wrap as the second course, Chicken Corn Soup, Deep Fried Tofu, Deep Fried Squid, Pan Fried Rice Rolls, Sticky Rice, Beef with Flat Noodles, Chicken Fried Rice, Beef Balls, some vegetables, and Sesame Balls.
The Peking Duck was something that I was craving for a long time, and only got to have a litte taste of it at my friend’s birthday a few weeks ago. This satisfied my craving. The warm wrapper, hoisin, green onion, thinly sliced duck, and crisp skin was realy good. They did something a little different and added cucumber for more crunch and freshness. The fried tofu and squid were topped with the same garlic, and chilis. Both were nice and crisp. The squid remained tender and not too rubbery. Just the right amount of seasoning and spice. I was glad that the rice rolls didn’t come with dried shrimp. They were perfectly seasoned. Normally, I don’t like the big beef balls, but they were pleasnatly good this time around. Very juicy, and moist, and the flavouring wasn’t too overpowering. The fried rice was good, but I am always looking for that nutty flavour to the rice that I had at Nong. They had the best fried rice I’ve had. The sesame balls were crisp,and filled with red bean. It had just the right amount of sweetness to end our meal.
King Do Seafood Restaurant’s staff was really good. They were very attentive, kind, and helpful. The one thing that bugged me was that they took away our chopsticks, and replaced them with forks when we were seated. We can use them too you know.
