There aren't many authentic Chinese restaurants here in Alameda, however, East Ocean is one of the authentic Chinese restaurants that serves Hong Kong style food. At lunch they go all out with dimsum items that brings many East Bayers out to feast on the delicacies of Chinese cuisine. Their dimsum items are delicious and so are their noodle dishes. One item I wouldn't order though is "gai si yin min" which is a chicken strip braised noodle dish. When we got the dish, at first we couldn't find any chicken at all. But on inspection, we found little tiny threads of chicken. Usually the chicken pieces are larger, but it was a total rip off here at East Ocean. I'd stick to the dimsum items for lunch.
I've been here for lunch a couple of times, but I found their dinner items to be a bit too salty (maybe with hints of MSG?). But other than that, East Ocean is a pretty good Chinese restaurant, considering the limited choices we have in Alameda.
