short yank sing update

Hungryfina | Jun 14, 2006 09:37 PM

For my visit to yank sing for lunch today I decided to listen to recommendations and mostly order steamed items. It was really hard to avoid getting everything that passed on those little carts, but somehow I managed. My favorite of the day was definitely the pea shoot dumplings (looked like spinach in a pot sticker shaped dumpling but more flavorful and light), closely followed by the shrimp gow (little round dumplings with large balls of chopped shrimp). We also sampled the chicken mushroom dumplings which were just fine, the BBQ pork buns (a personal favorite of mine and I LOVE Yank Sing’s version), and the special crab cakes (steamed and light with a good chili sauce). The only disappointment was the peeking duck which was bland and fatty and the skin wasn’t crispy enough. I’m usually a fan of peeking duck so I was surprised and let down by this dish. All is well that ends well though and since I am officially obsessed with the coconut cream roll (a sweet rice roll with custard filling and coconut on the outside) I left a very happy customer.
