As Chinese New Year approaches, I start getting mad cravings for Asian food.
Last weekend I was DESPERATE for dim sum. YEARNING for yum-cha. And willing to drive 40 miles for it.
I started grabbing items off dim sum carts before Kris could even sit down.
har gow (shrimp dumpling):
siu mai (pork dumpling):
shrimp spring rolls:
lo bak goh (pan fried radish cake):
lo mai gai (sticky rice wrapped in lotus leaf):
stewed beef tripe:
congee w/ pork & century egg:
Yes, 10 dishes is a lot for 2 people. But I kinda lost control (this is what happens when I don't have dim sum for over 6 months). Thank goodness the dishes were reasonably priced from $2.50 - $4.
Despite being a dim sum 'snob' from Vancouver, I found the quality of the food at Sunny Palace fairly decent. Hubby was also impressed with the restaurant's cleanliness and ample parking. We'll definitely be back.
Kris had to literally drag me out of the restaurant, as I couldn't get enough of the giant aquarium located in the main entrance, especially this cutie-patootie puffer fish:
