If there’s one thing that I think Seattle’s lacking, it would be a good dim sum place. Being on Castro Street in Mountain View (California) made up for the lack of dim sum in my life. With so many options for places to dine, I couldn’t help but want to indulge in some good dim sum. Not to mention, it’s quite fun for me to exercise my Cantonese every now and then. hehe
I find that going with a group of four to be the perfect number of people to have dim sum with. For some reason, the majority of the dishes are plated in servings of four (minus the sweet treats), which worked out perfectly for us.
So the next two photos have a bit of a charming back-story. One of my friends is in looove with these steamed custard buns. He thinks they’re the best thing in the world and kept raving about them throughout the meal until we were able to flag down a server to grab an order of these.
While they are delicious, they weren’t as amazing as he made them out to be. I mean, they were tasty, but not to die for. Needless to say, I was a little less than impressed and needed something else to fill my dessert stomach with. (Yes, I believe that everyone has two stomachs: one for regular food and one for desserts!)
To end the meal off right, we all ordered a serving of mango pudding. YUM YUM YUM! I can’t say enough how much I love mango pudding. Something about this dish just hits the spot every time. : )
