Maru & Mayflower Seafood Restaurant

Maru (Koreatown)

Just a couple quickie reviews. I checked out Maru Korean Cuisine for the second last August and wasn't wowed by the food. It wasn't bad, but just not spectacular plus language was a bit of a barrier to the point that the two ladies there pulled in another business owner to help with taking our orders. Also, there were some items we wanted to order but they had run of them already, so that was another pain.

I also checked out for Mayflower Seafood Restaurant in Chinatown for the first time a couple of weeks ago. There were only two of us so we weren't able to do a large sampling of their extensive menu, but what we did ordered we really liked a lot.

The waitress recommended the Mayflower Lobster Special and along with that we ordered the spinach with crab meat and the steam whole fish. That lobster was to die for. Lots of garlic plus the lobster meat was moist. We were very happy.

The steamed fish was also a hit. The white meat was delicate and also moist and the sauce which may have been soy sauce and ginger perhaps was excellent.

The spinach was nothing spectacular and of course, this was ordered the night that the reports came out about the E-Coli outbreak and I didn't know anything about any of this until I saw the news later on that night.

Anyway, the two seafood items we ordered really were delicious and I look forward to going back and trying out more items from their menu.
