The menu at Regal Seafood House and Lounge, the glitzy Stafford outpost from the folks behind Galleria area gem E­Tao, is a bit of a tome. It’s probably a good bet that the soups, for the most part, stand up to the rigors of the deeply flavored and insistent shrimp wonton version, a surprisingly elegant affair worth multiples of its $6 price. The kitchen can also turn out fried rice with the assured sense of purpose demonstrated in a pale and lovely version dotted with pearly shrimp, drifts of delicate egg white and crunchy rounds of thinly sliced Chinese Broccoli, all dusted with just the right amount of dried and shredded scallop. It’s probably safe to assume the same high quality from the broader selection. It’s clear that the kitchen knows how to handle a range of proteins and the treatment of seafood can be quite good. Be wary of sauces; the freshly netted lobster or crab might be blanketed by a glut of overly thickened ones. Look for the dishes with the fewest ingredients—the better to let the kitchen let the star shine. Ask for guidance through the vaguely worded menu, keep it simple, and you should find plenty of riches at Regal.
