Tastee Steam Kitchen is a new kind of restaurant where nearly every item on the menu is steamed to order at your table, including several different varieties of live seafood. It’s the splashiest seafood restaurant to hit Oakland Chinatown since maybe ever. It's a “steam hot pot” restaurant, a relatively new genre of eatery that has become popular in Hong Kong and China in the past couple of years. The idea is that, instead of poaching or boiling the raw ingredients in a big pot of soup the way you would at a traditional hot pot restaurant, you cook the food in the aforementioned steamers. The method is touted as a healthier alternative. To our knowledge, it's the first of its kind in the East Bay.
