New dim sum place at McCowan and Sheppard

Sorry Guys, I forgot what it's called in Chinese, let alone know the English name, but we just tried a new dim sum place (beside the korean bbq place, I think this is the former "tak hing hot pot") and it was quite nice! They're doing $1.60 dim sum, and if you're saying that I heard about the free tea, they'll put "free" on your dim sum card too. It's one of those check-the-box dim sum, so no carts rolling around.

As I remember, it was $1.60 for small, medium and large dim sum, $2 for the special, and then there's stir fried rice, noodles, etc. at >$4. We just tried the dim sum, no rice or noodles. We liked the shrimp in long white noodles (cheung fun); it was soooooo smooth and silky, with a little bit of chewiness in them. The calamari was good too (at $2); it wasn't battered at all so you don't have to eat all the guck that comes along with it. Nice and light.

Oh, and it's the same price for the whole week, no premium prices on the weekends, so go early on the weekends (before 12pm). We got in just before 12, and afterwards, there was a big line up at the door. But they're still working out the kinks in the kitchen, so be patient.. we actually left without getting all of our order.
