Sam Woo offers various cooking styles.
- Cantonese Cuisine
Most Westerners are familiar with this type of
Chinese cooking. Originally, it came from the
city of Canton (now Guangzhou). Today, you
find its most dramatic expression in Hong Kong.
The taste is light and not salty, using all
fresh and natural ingredients.. This new Hong
Kong style of eating is popular is all over
East Asia. It is perfect for today’s
This is the classic Cantonese method of cooking.
Heat a small amount of oil in a wok designed
to focus the heat in the center of the pan.
This allows for a short cooking time. This
method grew out of a shortage of fuel. A quick
burst of cooking uses less wood or coal. The
Cantonese turned this necessity into an art.
With such a short cooking time, the secret
of success lies in preparing the ingredients.
To cook them evenly, chop them to a uniform
size. To do this, our Chinese chefs use heavy
cleavers that look unwieldy. But they quickly
slice scallions into tiny silken threads.
We at Sam Woo Restaurants think
only of your dining pleasure To that end, this
menu offers a variety of creations from Hong Kong.
We feature specialties from all over China. We
also create fresh seafood dishes in our own kitchen.
For you, we have created an exciting and affordable
dining experience. You will agree: no one can match
Steaming is also a poplar Cantonese method of cooking. It
is especially good for fresh fish and seafood. We place
a whole sea-bass filet into a bamboo steamer. Then we add
oil with lightly cooked slivers of scallions and fresh
ginger. Another Cantonese favorite is steamed scallops
in black bean sauce. Our chefs excel in mixing contrasting
flavors that show off the taste of each one. We pickle
our vegetables with a mixture of salt, sugar and vinegar.
Our sauce for sweet-and-sour pork brings out the best of
fresh onions, green peppers, pineapple, and cherries.
Don’t forget Sam Woo’s famous Cantonese roast
duck. This dish is truly delicious. We stuff the duck with
scallions and bean paste. Then we glaze it with a honey-and-vinegar
marinade. This gives it a sweet and sharp flavor. Finally,
we serve it with orange and plum sauce. Yum! Take a roast
duck home. You can use it to prepare a great meal in three
minutes. You can eat roast duck cold, lukewarm, or hot. We
cut it up and use it in stir-fry. You can also shred it to
use as a garnish on noodles with parsley and green onions.
Dice it and toss with green pepper, pickled scallions and
fresh pineapple. Or, serve it as a summer dish garnished
