Hong Kong Dim Sum Islander, Sacramento

DIM SUM RESTAURANTS IN SACRAMENTO OPENS AROUND 10.30AM TO 11AM, unlike in Ipoh, the restaurants open as early as 6am or earlier.. I don't really mind having late Dim Sum, at least they are still available by the time I wake up, unlike in Malaysia, if I go around 10am, most of the best choices are sold out by then.

In Ipoh, my sister must have Dim Sum at least once a week... but over here, this is our second time in two months!  How she yearned... and this time we went to a different restaurant called Hong Kong Islander... Been there once before two years ago and naturally, I forgotten how they taste like... Some varieties are the same as in Ipoh but of course, they taste different.  We love the Steamed Beef Balls and the Braised Beef Stripes... Ipoh does not have any beef dim sum as far as I know...
Some varieties we ordered.. besides the Salted Egg Dumplings which I left out...
Love this dish... not available in Ipoh as yet... 
The bill came to around $50 with tea...
Yes, we have to pay another 15% on tips..
Compulsory over here.. 
More than enough for four people and we packet some back... 
No wonder my sister does not want Ipoh Dim Sum...
She can easily obtain them here anytime!
We will definitely be back again...
Perhaps to try their Chinese Dinner Cuisine...

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

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven.... Even when they were in the baking process... they look good, aren't they? LOL...  I was so happy just by looking at the mini egg cakes in the tray....  And after they were let out... my heart sank....  The minute I took them out from the tray, I knew... Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t

Home Cooked Dishes

NOT MUCH HAPPENING... and lazy too.... My neighbour gave me half pumpkin and I have been keeping it for a couple of days before I finally decide what to do with it.  I cook it into small chunks and sauteed it with minced meat, okra and basil leaves.  Yes, it would be great to put in some small cilipadi but unfortunately, I did not find any in my fridge.  Steamed a bowl of rice and that was meal for dinner.... One dish meal....  Pumpkin reminds me of sweet potatoes...sweet after cooking... Another dinner meal consist of Sambal Fish, black pepper met and a hard boiled egg  I only boiled the egg, the other two dishes were "sponsored" by my neighbour... LOL...
