Carrollton dim sum

pplachno | Jul 7, 2008 10:34 AM

We ate at Hong Kong Royale in Carrollton last Saturday for lunch. Dim Sum! We went right at lunchtime, and had no trouble being seated immediately. Very friendly, helpful service. They gave us a menu with pictures of the dim sum offerings, so we'd know what was available and could ask for what we wanted. We tried almost everything! I liked the taro puffs, all the dumplings (especially one with spinach), some kind of fried pork pie shaped like a dumpling. It was chewy and crisp at the same time. I wasn't crazy about the bbq bun (like a glazed sweet roll or something) or the thick rice soup, but my tablemates liked them. I also didn't like the hot tea, but again, my tablemates did. Oh, the little warm egg custard tarts were great! I also appreciated the green vegetable served cold with a sweet brown sauce spooned over. What was that? It was kind of like asparagus, but not. A friend from Little Rock said it was bok choy, but it was NOT. What was it???

This west Texas girl had never had dim sum before, and I loved it!
