Well we can't really afford nor justify it but we have been enjoying an outing once or twice a month. It's not terribly expensive - especially if compared to what it would cost to have dinner out. But this is a very welcome time that my Mr. and I look forward to - we anticipate it with our mouths and tummies. It's the exoticness of these little treasures called Dim Sum.
I always get a thrill to see what's under the lid of the "party tray" we order.
And there you have it - an assortment of about a dozen unique and modest delicacies.
Mr. And I prepare our soy sauce and hot chili sauce to accent. This is his "edible artwork"
And here's mine. A feast for the eyes.
This is an order of the sticky rice .
It comes all wrapped up in this HUGE leaf which we found out is a lotus leaf.
And our meal is complete when we add these pot stickers.
Hmmm - I missed taking a photo of an extra dish. It was a small cup of "dessert" ~ a complementary dish, a gift from the management. It was a very pale green, a thin milky looking broth, sweet, with a touch of pulp in it and tiny tapioca seeds. It was very sweet. The owner told us it was made from beans.
Mr. hated it (pulling a face I wish I'd caught on camera as if he was using his front teeth to scrape a caterpillar off his tongue!).
I thought it was fine though suspiciously like my buckwheat porridge!
