Fun Fact Friday

FunFactFriday

Happy Friday, lovelies! Another end to a busy week! We’re having a NoshGirl Party this weekend – will you be participating? 🙂  I think this Friday’s Fun Fact is especially appropriate for this blog:

Har gow (shrimp dumplings), from Golden Unicorn

“Dim sum” translates into “to touch the heart” or “a little bit of heart.” 

As you can imagine, this meal is dear to the heart of dim sum enthusiasts!

Have you had dim sum before? What is your favorite dish?

    I love dim sum…especially at the Golden Unicorn! Perhaps just as much as the food, I just really love the unique experience of eating dim sum–the grand ballrooms, the traveling carts. It’s so fun!

    Love dim sum! My favorite dish is the soup-filled dumplings – not sure what they’re called, but I could eat about five steam baskets full in one sitting.

    hmm, those Har Gow look pretty darn awesome. I’d have to say my favorite is the turnip cake (Law Bok Goh).

    Mmmm Dim Sum is so much fun! I have only had a real dim sum experience once but I had these shrimp bites that were covered in a crunchy crust (not breading, more like a noodle)? Anyways, they were amazing. And the experience was great!

    I LOVE dim sum!! It’s one of the meals the hubby and I could probably eat every day and not get sick of it!

    There’s too many delicious options to choose from, how do I choose just one?!

      Ah, I wonder if you’re referring to the har cheoyeon that Annie (above) mentions. They are shaped like rectangles!
