Dim Sum at Golden Unicorn

Perhaps the last thing this board needs is another dim sum post, but I thought I'd put in a plug for Golden Unicorn. Just got back and I thought it was great. The dumplings were excellent -- fresh and with more vegetables than I'm used to seeing. I basically ate every dumpling on offer and each was better than the last. Particularly good were the pan fried leek and shrimp dumplings as well as a dumpling that involved nuts of some sort. Also had the sticky rice (delicious) and the tripe and turnip (bit chewy but overall pretty good). The staff was efficient, but pleasant. It was a happy surprise. Better than Jing Fong. Dumplings were on par with Dim Sum Go Go (some were better), but I have a soft spot for the carts and the bustle of the huge places. We had walked into Ping's beforehand, but the dead prawns in the fish tank didn't inspire confidence (even if it is just for decoration).
