Get to Know the China Delight Family
Hours: Monday-Sunday, 11 a.m. to 10 p.m.
China Delight is very much a family run business. Here, a son helps his parents serve delectable cuisine at The Crossroads Carmel. Asian decor adorns the interior, while the family dishes up authentic Cantonese cuisine. In the mood for something filling? Try the chef’s Chow fun, it’s one of the family’s favorites.
What region of China does your cooking reflect?
It’s Cantonese style. It’s different from other regions in that it’s not too spicy, not too salty and not too over-the-top. It’s a cleaner, authentic cuisine.
What’s some of your most popular dishes?
It’s funny, people tend to order things in cycles. Every day we’ll seem to get a lot of one kind of order.
The other day it was cashew chicken, the next it was lemon chicken. Then it was broccoli beef the day after that. We always seem to sell a lot of wonton soup when it’s cold.
Favorite spices and flavoring agents?
Curry. And red chili peppers.
What’s your dish?
It’s gotta be the Hong Kong noodles or chef’s chow fun.
