Just as the popular traditional Japanese Edomae Nigiri Sushi is supposed to be eaten in a single bite. The iconic Cantonese Dim Sum dish - steamed shrimp dumpling, aka 'Har Gow' is also supposed to be dainty in design and consumed in one single mouthful.
However, the Har Gow I had at 'Premier Banquet' on Leslie this lunch time was so huge that, taken into account of it being piping hot, it took me over two bites to finish off the humongous beast! Losing all the precious juice in the process!
With competing restaurants trying to gain market share and showing their patrons that they are getting their money's worth, Larger and larger size Dim Sums are emerging. Steamed Beef Meatballs the size of baseball for one!
What do they think of next? Steamed Turkey or Ostrich feet? Or Braised Elephant Tendons?!
