Koi Palace, So authentic we were clueless!!

MSK | Apr 7, 2007 03:10 PM

We went to Yank Sing a few weeks ago and it was my first foray into Dim Sum. I've had many of the dishes as appetizers at Chinese restaurants but I had never been to this kind of format before. "I'm hooked," I thought.

After reading on this board that Koi Palace is considered the best and most authentic, I convinced my family to stop there for lunch on the way home from the airport. The place was mobbed (Fri. at 1pm) and we were the only all Caucasian table in the place. I was jazzed.

When we were finally seated, I looked at the menu and the carts and realized that almost nothing looked familiar. Those who waited on us did not speak much English so were unable to do more than point to help us.

We tried lots of new things but I don't think we made the best choices. Nothing was what we expected. It would be great to go back with some valuable advise.

So, we would love to hear those with experience chime in......preferably with suggestions that are not deep fried.(unless it's a truly must have).
