S.W. Seafood - Irvine
Fried pork chops so luscious with fat it gushes. Crackling crisp nests of noodle doused with fuming mountains of seafood and mushrooms in gravy so scrumptious it's almost surely loaded with MSG. Plump curls of shrimp, already cholesterol delivery systems now coated in rich mayo.
This is what I ate and ate and ate at S.W. Seafood, one of the most no-nonsense Cantonese restaurants in Irvine that May or may not be affiliated with the Sam Woo Restaurant Dynasty. I loved every artery-clogging, calorically-irresponsible morsel of it.
To offset and as appeasement to my dietary conscience, I also ordered spinach. It may have been too little too late, but at least I didn't order dim sum, which is possible to do here during dinner time.
I'm not positive how much higher those bowls of steamed tripe and pork-laden shumais would've sent my LDL levels, but I'm pretty sure it wouldn't have helped.
