dimsum at Harbor Village at Embacadero 4

Got there right when they opend at 10:30 on Saturday. We thought we would be clever to avoid the crowd...but we weren't so clever. It turned out right at the opening the "good stuff" aren't presented. By "good stuff" I don't mean yummy or not, I mean the stuff that I wanted to eat.
We stuck around until almont noon and eventually saw many many dishes we wanted to try but were too full.

That's always been my dimsum dilema. We sit down, we order what comes by, but there are so many choices, even if we don't order everything that comes by eventually I'm full but I see other stuff that I want!

Of the stuff we ate, the following stood out.
Chinese brocalli- really well done. Bright green, crunchy, not bitter, just the right amount of oyster sauce. Onion cakes- some sort of pastry with onion fillings. Very flaky crust and the onion filling was sweet without being too coy. Actually, anything with a pastry crust was excellent (which then includes the bbq pork in pastry crust)
Custard tart - flaky crust again, filling not too eggy not too sweet, just right combination of sweetness and flakness for a good dessert ending.

The whole thing was expensive thought. For three we paid $27 each (no drinks except tea).
