Awash in pink linen tablecloths, the dining room at Silver Pond in Lauderhill is framed by assertive maroon wallpaper with a Chinese mural at one end and a wall of tanks at the other, with lobsters and Dungeness crabs on display. Small groups of Chinese families using chopsticks flank a dining room peppered with tourists wielding forks and knives. Don't let a wan dining room dissuade you Silver Pond. Be ready for adventure offered on an epic menu of Cantonese cuisine. Seafood is most represented, including sea cucumber, abalone, and conch. The lobster is among the best in the area, regardless of culinary genre. Aside from seafood, try the bird's nest with savory vegetables, the crispy Hong Kong chicken, or the Peking rubbed pork chops for authentic dishes.
