Windsor Dim Sum Cafe, minor quirks and non dim sum recs?

VivreManger | Apr 5, 2011 05:27 AM

Windsor Dim Sum is a treasure.

I have only two quirky complaints:

1) When the orders arrive fast and furious I have no idea of the relationship between what I have ordered and what I am receiving. The servers work hard and quickly and are English-challenged so their descriptions are not patient and pellucid.

2) I have not yet figured out why everything with XO sauce is twice the price of dishes without. For example, Pan Fried Turnip Cake with XO sauce is $5.95 while plain Pan Fried Turnip Cake is $2.95, I know that XO sauce is better than simple Maggi sauce, but twice the price? Or is the portion with sauce larger than the portion without?

With that out of the way, I want to turn to more serious issues. I know this is heresy, but I am willing to consider other parts of the menu that look interesting. Has anyone tried the Hot Pots. Lamb with Dried Bean Curd Thread and Braised Beef Brisket with Turnip sound particularly appealing. Are their noodle dishes anything special?

I await your pellucid responses with gratitude and patience.

(But not too much patience since I plan to eat there tomorrow night)
