Hong Kong Dim Sum In Sacramento

SO FAR I HAD TRIED TWO RESTAURANTS selling Dim Sum...one of them is Hong Kong Islander.. The Dim Su restaurants here open at 10am, unlike the ones in Malaysia whixh open as early as 5am?  

I love the way they organize the crowd over here in Sacramento... We were given a number and then when the table is ready, we would be called in... We do not have to "search" high and low for a table or share table with anyone... Well, I guess this way is better, register purselves at the counter and then wait to be seated...
Ambience is not bad....
And the dim sum are bigger than those in my town....
Beef balls are very common over here....
Another type of dim sum....
Glutinous rice wrapped with lotus leaf...
Part of the food we ordered....
They kept coming....
And here we are...so blessed with good food on a Saturday 
After our tummies were filled, we went on our way to Vacaville ......

  3. So many empty tables, still have to take number and wait kah? Can see that the siew mai sure is bigger - 3rd last pic.

    Bet it is a lot more expensive than here, very much worse if after conversion X almost 4. My friends and family overseas all learn to make their own - I am so very impressed. Here, we just go and buy, never bother to learn, always take it all for granted. Chinese say, know how to eat only.

  5. Everything is huge and enormous there, so are the dim sums!
    I remembered my American friends are crazy over their Char Siew Paus.

  7. Most definitely, everything is bigger in the US! So nice you get to have 2 dim sum meals so far! It was always almost impossible for me in Colorado :(

  9. Dim sum looks similar to the ones we get here in Sydney too.. I guess that's a HK signature. Too bad they don't have the lor mai kai that we are used to in Msia.. the lor mai kai here is the glutinous rice wrapped in lotus leaf like yours. Simply not the same! But oh well, beggars can't be choosers! :)

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL... 
Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch here in …

Caring And Sharing At Limestone, Regal Lodge, Ipoh

IMPROMPTU GATHERING.... Nothing was planned beforehand, it was only at the last minute that we received call to have lunch at Limestone Cafe, inside Regal Lodge.  It was my first time there to have set lunch.  The menu prices were reasonable, around RM15.90 for the main dish, RM3 for a bowl of soup and RM2 for ice cream.  Other than that, coffee, tea and soft drinks are free.  
We were there not so much for the food but for the ambiance... we practically had the whole cafe to ourselves during that lunch hour.  Only one or two tables were occupied and we spent more than two hours there since it was a Friday long hour lunch for my working colleagues.  After a few months absence from me, it was wonderful to catch up with my ex-colleagues again!  
I was super hungry by lunch time and I felt like eating almost anything in the menu. We ended up ordering one main dish each and then sharing them with one another so that we could taste a bit of this and that..... 
I felt like eating Aglio Oli…

Famous Wanton Mee At New Hoong Kee, Bandar Sri Damansara

BREAKFAST FEAST..  Best meal of the day is always my first meal because I know I am able to tuck in as much as my stomach can accept.  I eat a lot in the mornings and then slowly dwindle by the end of the day.  As the saying goes, eat like a king in the morning and like a pauper in the evenings.  This is what I normally do nowadays, not because I wanted to, but it is my own body system that tune me this way.  Though I deny I am old but the body says otherwise... LOL...

On this morning, we went to New Hoong Kee in Bandar Sri Damansara, my sibling said this is currently his favourite place.  And after trying, I know why.... the food we ordered, all turned out good and tasty, even the curry reminded me of my good old days!
Managed to catch the name otherwise I wouldn't be able to tell this story now...  My type of curry... I can go without the chicken... Just the other ingredients will do fine for me.. I like the way they cook this curry... Heard the BBQ pork is tasty too... melt in …
