HK Dim Sum

So excited to meet up with another Mom Friend to go to dim sum.  
 While we mostly talk about cute kids stories, we also got to know about each other's background.  I'm telling you, nothing like food that brings people together.
 First thing arrived is the Lotus Leave wrapped chicken sticky rice.
 The rice was good this day, not dried, it was soaked in soup before cooking, and they put a piece of Chinese dried sausage in there.  There's shredded chicken in it, I promise.
 Turnip cake, which was a tad too cooked... hmm.
We also got Har Gow (steamed shrimp dumpling), pretty good, big chunk of shrimp and the skin is nice and glassy, doesn't taste that way, don't worry.  But it's thought to be great if it is almost see-thru like on the skin.

Then, Char Siu Bao (steamed BBQ Pork bun).  I wish they give you more meat in there, but otherwise not shabby.

Also not pictured was Rice Roll with shrimp, they don't skim you on the shrimp.  They give you big chunks for sure.  And also not pictured, Egg Custard Tart.  Their shell for the tart is cookie shell, which holds up better but sweeter base along with the taste of the egg custard.  Pretty delightful.

My suggestion about going is that go early, we arrived at 10:30a was perfect, there were people there already but still seats available, by the time we were leaving there were people waiting outside to go in.  Don't be scared by how fast they clear tables, they needed to turn tables over for the next guests, and you do feel rush off, but they are just so popular to maintain that business.
