Archive for the ‘Yum Cha’ Category

The Mouse hasn’t eaten yum cha in a loooong while. The Cat and The Mouse running errands. Thought we had to get something from Chinatown but changed our minds. But since we were there. Hee hee.

Stuffed Tofu Skin
Shrimp Dumplings
Char Siu Bao
Chicken Feet

The restaurant was inundated with take-out orders, staff a bit frazzled. The Cat and The Mouse didn’t get to order a couple of dim sum that we wanted. Next time.

Stay safe and well.

Epic Lunch Sequel

The eve before Christmas Eve. The Mouse got realigned, Did an errand for The Cat (picked up a box of chocolate dipped ginger for one of her clients). Had lunch.

But first, since The Mouse was at the store (buying the box of ginger chocolate) …

Chocolate Covered Oreo

A little treat for The Mouse. These are sweet. Can’t eat more than one or two a year.

Okay, on to lunch. I know, yum cha is supposed to be a communal eating event, and for most of the time, The Mouse agrees. But once in a while, it’s good to fly solo.

The Place

Just a few weeks ago the place was Good Fortune, oh well.

Not much change, food seemed the same.

Shrimp Dumplings
Pork, Mushroom, and Peanut Dumpling


Salted Pork and Preserved Egg Congee (Jook)


Spinach and Scallop Dumpling


The “Cha” part of “Yum Cha” 🙂

The Mouse usually can’t leave a dim sum meal without …

Egg Custard Tart

If The Mouse ever gets to Macao or Portugal, you know what he’s eating first. Hee hee.

After that, The Mouse went home to hibernate.

On a side note, The Mouse can’t leave an izakaya without ordering dashimaki tamago. 🙂

Enjoy. Eat well.
