Fun Fact Friday

January 27, 2012 By: Serena

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?

  1. 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!

  7. 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!
