Review on Ocean Treasure
Head out of Manchester towards Oldham to find this Chinese restaurant, Ocean Treasure, above an oriental supermarket: you can't miss its colourful pagoda-like exterior. Inside, it puts on a plush face with dark woodwork, pale sea-blue colour schemes and mirrors; there are also fish tanks where crabs and lobsters while away the time until they are despatched in the kitchen.
Daytime dim sum are well up-to-the-mark: on the list you might find har gau (steamed prawn dumplings), beef balls with greens, shark's fin dumplings in 'high stock', and pungent chiu chow fan gar filled with minced meat, dried shrimps and preserved vegetables.
In addition to crustacea from the tanks, the kitchen also delivers a range of seafood dishes like deep-fried crab claws 'wrapped with king prawns', sweet-and-sour yellow croaker, steamed razor clams with soy and ginger, and mega-expensive braised sun-dried abalone. Alternatively, opt for something more conventional like aromatic crispy duck, Szechuan king prawns with chilli or stir-fried pork in black bean sauce.
