Victoria Seafood Restaurant, a favorite of Boston University college students as well as locals looking for a great deal on Chinese food, isn’t going to win any prizes for décor, thanks to pink tablecloths, small booths and a few live fish tanks in the back. The otherwise bare bones spot is packed at lunch, when specials like General Gau’s Chicken and Moo Goo Gai Pan are just $5.50 and include soup, an appetizer and rice or scallion lo mein. You’d think such an inexpensive meal would be skimpy, but even those with a hearty appetite often have enough leftovers to take home. On the regular menu, all of the Chinese food standards can be found, from whole Peking duck to beef with broccoli. And there is certainly plenty of namesake seafood on offer, including shrimp, squid, jelly fish, clams, sea bass and more.
