“very good food and great people”

Chuwei Fishing Harbor
Reviewed 24 April 2013

We went here on a cold and rainy morning and were happy to find the fish market was inside, it was amazing..I have never seen so many different types of fish or shellfish. We walked around a couple hours trying to chat with vendors (few speak English) You buy whatever fish or shellfish you want and can either take it home or go upstairs to one of the restaurant shops and they will prepare it for you. We ventured outside and found a restaurant that also had fresh shellfish and we picked out a 2.5 lb lobster. It was a family style place with the family in the middle of their own lunch. The family tried to ask us how we wanted it fixed (no English here, we just worked thru it). Finally she smiled, took our lobster and ended up serving us one of the best meals I have ever eaten. She made some soup with the claws and legs, served us fresh cooked veggies, fried rice (not the same as American fried rice) and then the tail came in the form of a salad which was fantastic!!! The entire meal was perfect and the hospitality fantastic, what a wonderful experience we had! We did learn that 2.5 lbs of lobster for two people is too much. They didn't have a business card, but we did get a picture of the building which I will try to get translated and come back in to add the name and address of the restaurant.
