Jing Fong Review

CTownFeedR | Jun 7, 2004 09:04 AM

Went for Dim Sum on Sunday at the renovated Jing Fong. Just two of us so the items we ate were limited.

Highlights:
Tripe in brown sauce. Excellent, full flavored, each bite with depth and a light spiciness which made the dish warm and alive in the mouth. On par with Gum Fung's in Flushing.

Beef Tendon. Sweet, slight gummy texture one would expect from the tendon. Meaty, quite tasty.

Now my issue. Limited items! We never saw much of anything go by. No shrimp dumplings (either Har Gau or Shumai). No sticky rice. No steamed roast pork buns. Very little in the way of any dumplings (only saw pork shumai and a fish dumpling). No turnip cakes. No veggies at the steam table. Seriously, we are talking about a significant lack here. All of this was missing between 12:30 - 1:30, in my mind the peak period for variety. I have a feeling thing were getting snapped up by tables close to the kitchen. If you go at the prime times, I would suggest you try for tables close to where the carts come out.
