World Tong Dim Sum, don't let this happen to you

Maaaaan, today is the first time I went to World Tong where someone spoke alot of English to me, and I have to say it messed things up. We got stuck in the back left side of the room on a big half table facing the wall. The chap who came over said something about us reading about them in a paper (which I didn't hear about until later -- it would have been a quicker giveaway)

He proceeded to suggest things that he thought westerners liked. My friend said we weren't typical. I told him we wanted chicken feet.

Anyway, they kept trying to feed us stuff we didn't want. That back side table is really cut off from the free flow of dim sum carts where you can catch what you want as the ladies bring it by. If you speak Chinese, it doesn't matter what table you're at. If you don't, hold out for seating where your entire party is not facing away from the room!

And yes, of course the food was delicious!

Except for the stuff in scallop shells with baked miracle whip on top. YUCK!

Both kinds of little green sweets we tried were great -- the flaky oblong in paper is durian, in a creamy Intro-To-Durian custard, the other a bean paste filled green golf ball that's not too sweet and just right.
