Dai Wah Yummy City
Brooklyn, NY 11204
Village Voice's Description
Dai Wah is evidence of a new style of Cantonese restaurant, boxy and unconcerned about its looks, low priced, yet featuring high quality ingredients. Look no further than the fried flounder for a scallion-strewn budget tour-de-force; even the bones have been rendered scrumptiously edible. The charcuterie is some of Bensonhurst's best, the Singapore style lo mein more luxuriously furnished than most, the soups mild and voluminous, and the spicy clams as mouth-searing as claimed. For vegetarians, the braised e-fu noodles with black mushrooms, and the "thousand year eggs, salted egg & chicken egg with snow pea leaf in soup" are particularly recommended.
Tips from foursquare
Promotions on double lobster, less than $10. Try the eggplant/chicken/salty fish pot, they don't skimp on the salty fish.
$5 rices dishes that are tasty = win
Don't come here if you're a germaphobe, this place is pretty dirty. Food is okay, just another greasy Chinese food place.
