1/1/08 Dim Sum fun times at Gitlo's

Hit Gitlo's today with 7 hounds for two solid hours of plowing our way through Gitlo's menu.

Here's what we had:

Seaweed Shiu Mai - tasty shrimp paste wrapped in seaweed
Shrimp Dumplings - lovely shrimp & broccoli
Sweet Potato Puff - almost like a croissant filled with sweet potato puree; loved these
Taro Cake - shows a lot of promise, though the chef can't get the taro to stick together; I especially liked the sesame seeds
Chow Chou Dumplings - fresh and tasty peanuts, celery and pork
Cantonese Dumplings - my favorite of the dumplings
Rainbow Clear Noodles
Shrimp Clear Noodles
Vegetable Buns - didn't get to try one of these
XO Sauce Daikon Cake - the third one of these we ordered was the crispiest and most caramelized; definitely amazing.
Custard Cream Buns - perfect

Everything was fresh and flavorful and Gitlo could not have been more accommodating. I'm really excited to have this dim sum option in Boston!

What did I miss, hounds?
