M Shanghai Dim Sum brunch, and Oslo coffee, W'burg

Had a very tasty dim sum brunch yesterday at M Shanghai Bistro, Havemeyer & Grand (it's only available on Sunday's). We weren't starving, and there were only 2 of us, so we just had 3 things: steamed juicy pork bun – really delicious; spicy wontons — a little too peanut-y but with soy sauce added was very well balanced; and steamed red bean paste bun – also good with some soy to balance the sweet with salt. They were out of the sweet & sour cucumber salad. You get a free drink with 3 or more dim sum -- bloody mary, mimosa, beer etc and the individual dishes were in the $3-5 range, I think this is a good value, and I think the food there is good. It wasn't crowded at all, but the bartender told us that last weekend was jammed – go figure. The link below has the regular menu, not the dim sum menu, but many of the items are the same.

Also stopped by a new coffee place, Oslo, at 133 Roebling. VERY good coffee – a macchiato that made my husband, the coffee-maven, very happy. I had a hot chocolate which was creamy and delicious. This is in that funny new building on the corner with all the wrought-iron door and window “treatments” – kind of odd.
