TORONTO’S TOP TAKEOUT: 2-for-1 dim sum, son!!!

Now, the dim sum snobs all over this city will tell you that for real-deal, authentic dim sum, you gotta go up to Markham or Richmond Hill. But hey, those places are in lockdown just like we are, and it’s not like they deliver all the way to Downtown Flavourtown. On the other hand, I’ve had some pretty decent dim sum downtown at Dim Sum King, so when I heard they were doing a two-for-one special on Uber Eats, I had to get two of everything.

We’re starting off with two containers of Mashed Chicken Cream Corn Thick Soup, which is like Chinese chicken soup for the soul, son! Now, I probably didn’t need to eat two orders of this, but hey, when they’re two for one, that’s what I call a Good Deal, Jimmy Bro Yang!!!

Now, these Deep Fried Shrimp Rolls don’t need much of an explanation. It’s crispy like a spring roll, but on the inside, there is only shrimp. Man, I could scarf at least six of these…which just so happens to be how many are in this 2-for-1 order, bro!!!

Now, since there’s no such thing as too much shrimp, I also doubled down on some Pan Fried Chives & Shrimp Cakes. These deep-fried dumplings were just stuffed with shrimp, alongside enough green onions to make sure I got at least one serving of veggies this week.

Of course, you can’t have dim sum without siu mai, you guys! These steamed pork/beef dumplings stayed nice ‘n warm in the plastic containers…except maybe toward the end, since, y’know, I was eating like 27 other things at once.

Now, I didn’t really have room for dessert, but I figured that a coupla fortune cookies couldn’t hurt. And it turns out my fortune came true — “You will be taking a giant dump soon!”
