Dim Sum Civil War North vs. South.
After gg failed to choose which Yang Sing or ABC was better. This failure to pick a winner has cause a rift in the Bay Area Chowhound family. We need to have a closure to this problem.
So after the glove was throw down by the North (Rochelle) and picked up (Yimster) we in the South have form a tasting team where by we will be able to say this is the best place for dim sum in the Bay Area.
These members Ruth, Rochelle and Derek will make up the North dim sum team. These members Tanspace, Yimster and Greg will make up the South dim sum team.
We will select two high end teahouses in each area. Also at the request of Han Lukito we will be adding a low end site for a total of three sites for each side. This is news to the North team and am sure it will be agreeable to the North team. The teams will develop a list of common items (6 to 8) where all the places have on the menu. Also they will pick four signature dishes of the teahouse. The teams will then do a taste test and will gave number grade for each of the four sites.
The real winner will be the Members of the Chowhound community. Because they will be able join the dim sum tasting with a small donation to Chowhound. Watch the board for future posting.
These are the ground rules that have been agree upon.
We will not use Yang Sing and ABC
The North will get San Mateo County. Rochelle said wait the only two Chinese speakers are on the South team, it not fair. So Melanie with the Wisdom of Solomon said Rochelle you can have San Mateo County. Yimster agreed to this.
I want to warn the North one of the members of your team will work for Chicken fee-ts.
This event is not a Chowhound Inc. event. It is an event setup by the member of the tasting team. It is hoped that you will take part is this Civil War where everyone wins. We have gg to thanks for this set of events. I hope gg and Boston enjoy reading this posting.
