Now, I don’t always get out of bed before noon on weekends–unless there’s brunch involved. Whether we’re talking crepes, skillets or waffles, I love the smell of some real-deal brunchfast in the morning. Especially if I don’t hafta cook it. In an ideal world, people would just walk around with carts of food, and ask me what I wanna eat…like they do at Dim Sum King, this funky all-day dim sum joint in Downtown Chinatown!
And man, this place has everything–dumplings, steamed pork buns, peel-and-eat shrimp, beef short ribs…even roast duck, bro! If you ever wanted to stuff your face full of Chinese food for like 20 bucks a head, bring the whole family for this festival of funk in Flavourtown!!!!
So, we’re starting off with some crispy shrimp wontons, topped with donkey sauce. Dude, this is body by crispy shrimp wontons, topped with donkey sauce!!!
Speaking of shrimp, this shrimp dumpling is about to go straight down my piehole!!!!
Because you can never get enough shrimp, we’ve got peel-and-eat garlic shrimp, shrimp-stuffed jalapeno peppers, and some sticky rice (with no shrimp).
You get your balls to the wall, man… We’re talking steamed beef meatballs, bro!
Of course, you can’t have dim sum without dumplings. Siu mai, har gow… pas le temps de niaiser!
This place also has not one, but two kinds of pork buns. Me, I like mine steamed…
Now, it’s time for the piece de resistance. This Peking Duck is cooked perfectly, nice and fatty with a crispy skin. And not too many bones, either!
Now, after all that dim sum, you’d think I wouldn’t have room for dessert…but this piece of pan-fried water chestnut cake oughtta do’er.
