I'm going to start off my write-up by announcing......this outfit sells store-made, authentic Hong Kong style XO-Sauce!! ( Dried scallops, sun dried shrimps, Chinese ham, salted preserved fish, garlic, red chili....etc ). Very delicious and genuine taste profile. However at a price tag of $28 for a 250ml jar, IMO, a touch on the pricey side.....but, beggars cannot be choosers?! Right?!
As part of my shopping initiation, I bought three frozen Dim Sum items to try: Shrimp and Chive Pancakes ( can be pan fried or steamed ), traditional Har-Gow and Hong Kong style Shrimp Won-ton.
The shrimp and chive pancake was a nice tasty surprise. Prepared pan-fried rather than steamed. The small crispy packets of juicy and crunchy shrimp mixed with chopped aromatic chives yielded some delightful umami filled taste-bomb.
The Hong Kong style Won-ton was the rare, original, authentic, 'one-bite per mouthful' rendition. Nicely seasoned shrimp centers with very thin skin wrappers.
As expected, the Har Gow, like most versions offered around town, was borderline acceptable and slightly disappointing.....featuring the usual relatively thick wrapper. Juicy filling of crunchy shrimp and bamboo shoot bits was nicely seasoned.
To wrap up the buying spree, I bought a 1 liter carton of frozen ' Lobster Bisque ' for $18. Based on the extremely rich and dense appearance and an appealing lobster/seafood aroma, this product has potential?! Will report back!
