Ocean Star downhill, alas

I shoula listened. Been going to Ocean Star for close to two decades, IIRC. Last time I participated in a thread about dim sum, two other posters expressessed recent disapointment with them. I was dubious.

Nevertheless, as Cam the Chowpup gears up to go to school in the great Mid-West (Columbus OH, which I'm guessing doesn't have much dim sum) he demanded to take the "homies ("homeys"?) and homiettes" for a last round of dim sum, and picked OS over some of the newer menu places as an old fave of his.

We got there at 10:20 am this morning. There were empty tables, and we were seated Immedaitely. That shoulda told us...

Har-gow were gummy and ever-so-slightly "fishy"; rice-noodles with shrimp not light and bouncy, but kinda "sticky";we never did see the carts with roast chicken and duck, or mango pudding.

Cam's verdict: "Next time, NBC!"

The watermelon juice was good though.
