A neighborhood Chinese restaurant that caters to a mostly Asian clientele, Canton Palace has one of the best dim sums around. There are, of course, Americanized Chinese dishes available, so you can still find honey garlic chicken and beef with broccoli on a printed menu. But you can also find authentic Cantonese cuisine dishes written in both English and Chinese on a dry-erase board by the kitchen. The prices of these daily specials vary according to market but include such dishes as eel in black bean sauce. It would be a shame to visit Canton Palace and not take advantage of the extensive dim sum menu, however. Steamed pork and shrimp dumplings are a customer favorite, each order arriving with four pieces. The restaurant is always clean. If you are with a group, make use of one of the large, round tables that has a lazy Susan at its center - she'll make it easier to pass around the containers of dim sum. Service is usually slow, and you will not receive much attention unless you become a regular, but once you try the food, you probably will.
