點心在永順 / Dim Sum at Wing Shoon 165 East Broadway

jonkyo | May 31, 201205:39 PM     4

I recently visited the exhibition by Merlin Carpenter (Tate Cafe) at Reena Spaulings Fine Art, a gallery on the second floor in the back of 永順 (yong shun) or Wing Shoon Seafood Restaurant, and had to check out this busy place.

I happened in just in time for the dim sum cart being pushed from table to table and decided to forgo a plate of 1/4 roasted duck and try some of the dim sum. I had not had dim sum for a while. Tea is offered and best to bring friends, or co-workers. The offerings are quite good, though brush up on the types of foods that are offered in these small circular trays.

What I ate:

$2.00: three huge meat ball / 兩塊錢:大的豬肉丸

$2.00 one small plate of pork with bone / 兩塊: 小盤豬排骨

Tea is free, of course.

The art show ( instillation), which does contain food, is quite interesting, and though the Tate is a favored museum of mine, can't say that I found its cafe anything but the usual for a museum. I do appreciate the angle of Merlin Carpenter takes in this anti-establishment show, and you can ask if the cafe food articles are up for sale, but I would not bother and head to the front of the building's first floor.

So, go see the Tate Cafe at Reena Spaulings Fine Art, and see if you can save your appetite for the first floor's dim sum.
