I don’t know why life boss wants to try chinese food in China Town.
China town isn’t even authentic anymore. It’s catered to tourists and non asians. Hell, I would say that this is more viet town than china town (They got some good pho here by the way). Anyhow, this was why I was super surprised when she wanted to try Swatow. To her credit, our friend also gave rave reviews of this place. Stupid Yelp also says that too. Well I don’t know, but once again I am the fucking minority because the food was average at best. Life boss ordered the fish + rice dish, I had one piece of the fish and wanted to throw up immediately (though I am pretty bad with fish). I ordered the black pepper pork ribs, the sauce was good but the meat was not marinated whatsoever. Was not impressed. Not sure if we will come back again to be honest.
