Jun Bo, take three - few repeats MSP

The Chowish Lurker | Oct 9, 2006 10:46 PM

This weekend Danny and I took his mom to Jun Bo for dim sum. This is our third visit to Jun Bo and oh my, this place really seems to have an endless supply of dim sum goodness. We ordered way too much food and only had a few repeats. It was just too tempting seeing all the yummy food go by. oh well.

We started with a fried banana desert thing. We couldn't resist desert first and ohh it was good. It was basically a cut up banana in an egg roll wrapper. I had never seen this particular banana thing at Jun Bo during any of my previous visits. Very tasty.

Some of the other standouts besides the banana egg roll were the steamed bun filled with sticky rice, the fried tofu with shrimp, coconut buns, and of course, the pineapple bun! Both the coconut and pineapple buns when they are hot = a bun addiction. Seriously. Go get them now!

We also had soup dumplings although they were called Shanghai Juicy Dumplings. I didn't try them because I am not much of a meat eater, however Danny and mom LOVED them!

Danny loved the Watermelon Balls. They were green balls with a nutty filling. I didn't like them because I thought the filling texture was odd. But maybe that's just me.

Another observation: some of the food was only lukewarm. We were there a little after noon, yet it was still only sorta warm. However, the food being offered by the waiters with the trays were warm. Apparently, getting there early is a good tactic.

I don't think I'll ever get though all the dishes Jun Bo has to offer but yumm I'll have fun trying!
