Lights too bright…Dim Sum February 21, 2010

Filed under: Chinese,Dim Sum — phorealclub @ 5:30 am

What’s scarier than a dim sum restaurant on a Sunday at 11 a.m.?  A dim sum restaurant on a Sunday at 11 a.m. during Chinese New Year.  That’s right, 10 members of Pho’ Real braved the crowds to celebrate the year of the tiger (and cure their hangovers) in style at Ocean Harbor.  Check out our photos and faves below.

Bok Choy

The obligatory chicken feet

With so many carts rolling around, what were the standouts?  Well, G.L. loved the shrimp cakes, as did almost everyone else in the group.  S. T. favored the salted prawns, while L. S. proclaimed that chicken feet “are actually pretty good.”

Custard Ball

J.S. Designs liked the custard balls so much, she bought some at the Asian mart nearby to hold her over until our next extravaganza.  As for me, Lawngirl, I adored the clear shrimp dumplings and bok choy.

The check? or a Kandinsky? You decide.
