A Chinese Restaurant next to Kam Man

It turns out that I am oblivious sometimes. We had dinner last weekend at a Chinese / Cantonese seafood restaurant and I don't even know its name. I need some help here. If you are facing Kam Man, this restaurant is on the right. (Not China Pearl)

The food was ok. I've been there 3 times now. I remember liking the sweet potato leafs fried with fermented tofu. I don't know the name since someone else did the ordering. I was just there to lend my appetite.

This time we had a clam dish which was I really enjoyed! I spied another table this dish and asked the waiter for the same thing.

It's called "Empress Clam" and is $5 a clam. A pretty good deal I must say! It has chopped up pieces of clam with some vermicelli at the bottom. Not sure if this is seasonal, but I highly recommend trying the clams if they're available :)

We walked to Kam Man after dinner. They have an awesome selection of Asian cookies and snacks. Hey I need to feed my Pocky addiction. Kam Man puts Super 88 to shame. Super 88's selection of products at the Allston locale has been really limited of late.

These look so good! And simple, too!

Hi Tom, I asked a friend, the name of the restaurant is South Gate if you are interested in trying the clams :)
