Sullivan may be the most curiously named Chinese restaurant we've ever been to, but more about that later. First, let us introduce you to Shiu Mei Liu, the effusive, warm and generous proprietor who welcomes you into her world with her wide, charming smile. This small, bright and pleasant storefront restaurant in Huntington Beach is definitely worth a visit.
Think of all the times that you and a companion or two have gone into a Chinese restaurant and envied some large party with a Lazy Susan in the middle of their table, sampling a banquet of dishes. A really unusual feature at Sullivan is that they offer small and large portions of most dishes, so you can expand the number of selections that you order and have a mini-banquet for yourselves. We had quite the feast. Be forewarned, it might be a good idea to order appetizers and starters first and wait until they arrive before ordering entrées. We did it all at once, and entrées came out before the starters because they take longer to prepare.
