Dim Sum and Dumplings, again (a report)

CTer | Jul 25, 2002 05:00 PM

To celebrate finally renewing our passports, we went to Dim Sum Go Go for lunch. The downstairs was the only room in use, and it was full -- maybe 75% Asian customers, 25% non-Asian. The only menu we were given was a list of dim sum; not the regular menu. We had:
- 2 orders of Duck Dumplings: a teensy bit greasy, but since it was duck fat, okay! and loaded with tender chunks of duck
- Rice Rolls with Beef: the big flat rice noodle, wrapped around slices of what could have been braised brisket; interesting spicing to the sauce, not just Worcestershire
- Chives and Shrimp Dumplings: nothing else in them but shrimp and chinese chives
- Three Star Dumplings (the pink ones): nice contrast between soft chewy wrapper and crunchy waterchestnuts
- Abbot's Delight: also vegetarian, kind of a mish-mash.

The best part was that since you order and they bring it directly from the kitchen, everything was hot and fresh out of the steamer. And I like the very thin wrappers they make. Before tax and tip, $16.15, which didn't seem bad at all.

On the way homeI stopped at Tasty Dumpling on Mulberry, opposite Columbus Park. Brought home Fried Chive and Pork Dumplings (5 for $1). The filling kind of rattled around in the wrapper, but everything tasted fresh, and the dumplings were NOT greasy, as they can be at Fried Dumplings on Mosco.
