Dim Sum = Yum Yum

I ate Dim Sum in bed and watched a Christmas Story last Sunday. If you love Dim Sum, please tell me your favorites, so I can try them next time. If you've never had Dim Sum before, I hope this will entice you to try it for yourself. 

I didn't know what to order, so I stuck to the basics. Above is shrimp siu mai being dipped in a chili sauce. 

 This is a fried shrimp ball which was both fried, and steamed. They were crispy, and really moist.

One of my favorite dishes was the white radish cake. The texture is creamy, and I was expecting it to be sweet, but the flavors remind me of a turnip casserole that my great-grandmother makes (Yes, she is still alive!).

Char siu bao is a bun filled with bbq pork. They were ok, a little too much bun in my opinion, but not bad.

This plate is filled with shrimp siu mai in the back, white radish cake on the left, and bean curd rolls in the container. The bean curd rolls remind me of egg foo young, which is delicious.

Dum, Dum, Dum! Fried taro root was my absolute favorite dish:) The center was creamy, while the outside was crunchy. It was both sweet, and was simply delicious!

I'm still craving the fried taro root...YUM! Please tell me your favorites so I can try them too:D
