Dimsum. Or Asian Tapas. Thanks glenn for that comparison.
Where to get good dimsum in New York? Honestly, I have no idea. I heard Jing Fong has the best dimsum so thats where i have been going to the past two years. But to be honest, it’s not all that great. But then again, my standards are high for dimsum. I guess it’s decent. Edible. Enough to be enjoyable.
The shrimp flour roll is pretty good. The fried pork ribs in sweet and sour sauce was surprisingly good. The steam pork ribs are good. Everything else is meh.
But the best part about dimsum is the company. Sharing food with your friends and family. In my case, the people who live in the nuthouse twelve blocks away. The good thing about Jing Fong is that you are usually seated with other people you dont know if you got a small group. So if you are sitting with crazy people like I was, you can just pretend to not know them. Unfortunately for me, these nut cases were snapping photos and laughing hysterically, it was hard to pretend not knowing them.
“That’s just mean, mister!” Yes yes. I know you are gasping and saying that, while shaking your head. People who live 12 blocks away from me. People who are in college and suffering from bieber fever. I…. Shake My Head. Period.
And then I shake my head at myself because we are meeting again tonight for karaoke. Sigh.
For average tasting dimsum at a pretty good price and somewhat edible,
This may look bad, but actually it isn’t. It’s just that the dimsum back in Asia is a world of a difference.
