In search for Korean style Chinese food, we ended up at Four Seasons Restaurant on Folsom Boulevard. The restaurant is located in the middle of an interesting looking strip mall near Bradshaw Road. There was not a lot of room in the restaurant, and our party took the largest long table there. Once seated, we were provided with the menu, but the server took quite a while to bring us our drinks. Once the drinks were served, the server still took a long time to even take our order.

Once we were finally able to order, we ordered the Jiajang Myeon, Tangsooyook (Korean Sweet and Sour Pork), beef chow fun, sesame chicken, pot stickers, beef with vegetables, and sweet and sour chicken. Even after ordering, the food took quite a while to come out of the kitchen. The Jiajang Myeon tasted good, and they served the sauce on the side so that you can pour as much as you want. There was not a lot of meat, but there was a lot of sauce. The Tangsooyook tasted good too, but was not too different from standard sweet and sour pork. There was way too much breading on the meat, so you did not get a lot of meat as a whole. The sauce is lighter than traditional sweet and sour pork, but took much longer to bring out than expected. The beef chow fun tasted just like any other Chinese restaurant, but the portion size was quite a bit smaller. There was a decent balance of noodle to meat to onion. You can really taste the sesame flavor in the sesame chicken, but again, there was way too much breading on the meat. The pot stickers tasted OK, but did not seem homemade, so that was disappointing and overpriced. The beef with vegetables had way too many vegetables and not enough beef, but the dish did taste good. Finally, the sweet and sour chicken was just like the other fried dishes with way too much breading.

Overall, the food tasted decent but had too much breading, the service was extremely slow pre-ordering and post-ordering, and all of the dishes were overpriced. If given another opportunity to eat here, I would respectfully decline. If you want to eat Korean infused Chinese food, go to the Korean food court at the Korean supermarket. There were way too many mistakes made by the restaurant on this visit to warrant another chance.
