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.

  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! :)

An Evening Dinner At Chef Chew Kitchen, Petaling Jaya

BACK TO SG. BULOH for a couple of days.... Come evening, we went for dinner at Chef Chew Kitchen in Seksyen 19, Petaling Jaya.  Since it was my first time there, I did not know what to expect except to sit back, relax and eat.  LOL... It is a one shop lot restaurant so tables are very limited.  Reservation was made at 6pm to be on the safe side, to avoid crowds and waiting for food was very minimized at this time of the day.  For the seven of us, these dishes were served on the table... Thumbs up even before the dinner...  And soon these are served...  Claypot braised ribs...  Their signature dish... Fish Maw...  First time eating fish maw which is whitish in colour...  Black Beancurd with Pumpkin sauce... Hey, this restaurant indeed serves new to me! This must be Sweet Sauce Chicken... For the American... Cos we Asians like Steamed Chicken like this!  LOL...  And the star dish of the dinner is this...  Freshly steamed and succulent prawns

Our Orders From Afghanistan, Spanish And Australia

My Final post on the Food Festival in the Victoria Market on Wednesday night.... The atmosphere at the market was "enhanced" by the cheerful songs and music by a group band... It was indeed a merry evening filled with music-licous folk songs in the air... . Ok, how to find four seats in this crowd.... hmmmm....... Somehow we managed to... and these were what my boys brought back to our table.... Mexican rice with oysters... or is it Spanish rice?   Both are the same, I guess... LOL.... Afghanistan Food.... chunks of chicken meat with naan.... Brazilian food.... don't ask me what it is.... I just ate what was on the table....  But I am amazed by this giant burger....  ..... and what burger is this? They told me it is Crocodile Tail Burger! Meat from the crocodile tail?  Is it just a name or what... I really don't know... Took a few bites of it... and I am full!! Well, these were the food we

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
