Tastee Steam takes the Cantonese art of steamed foods to the next level. Similar to a shared cooking experience like hot pot or Korean BBQ, here you have a communal steamer at your table for seafood, meat, or vegetable dishes, and your server sets a timer for each dish. Underneath the steamer tray is a cauldron of bubbling congee that cooks and catches all the drippings over the course of the meal. This style of preparation ensures your fish, clams, or oysters are perfectly cooked every time - and you get to finish the meal with a satisfying bowl of that super flavorful congee.
