I think I survived my examinations. I have a feeling I could at least get a pass for everything. I have a good feeling.
Anyway, stress was definitely building up in all of us, so Thiam, Me, Sarah and Diaz decided to go for an authentic Dim Sum Lunch. Since it was ANZAC day, many places were closed. After
Ok, I know you will ask where got dim sum in a BBQ place?? Insane or not? Well, aparently the place serves dim sum particularly for breakfast and lunch, and it is then converted into an ordinary Chinese Restaurant with BBQ menu to go along with it later in the afternoon. Many places in Perth adopts similar patern in dining business. Weird, more like a 2 in 1 combo to me, but it works just fine, as long as the food prepared is good to the taste.
For those of you who do not know anything about dim sum, here is a short intro description. This is a form of lunch, prepared in sets of 2 to 4 pieces of yummy small portions, piled in trays dragged along by the restaurant waitors or waitresses passing your table. You can pick whatever you like from the selections available at the tray, and the bill will be marked accumulating each item you add on the table. Basically everything will look deliciously tempting, and the people serving the dim sum speak very fluent cantonese, which I know none of. Another sad fact about Robin Wong.
This will be a a food photoblog, so yeah, just feel free to lick your monitor screen if you can actually smell the aroma coming out from the pictures. Be hungry, be very, very hungry looking at the photos....
DEEP FRIED SQUID
This is one of my favourites in Dim Sum, but unfortunately the deep fried squid here is not crispy enough to my taste. And the chunky huge pieces do not add to my liking as well. Could have been better.
DEEP FRIED PRAWN WANTON
Fresh Prawns wrapped in golden crispy fried wanton skin... one of my favourites.. served with creamy mayonaise, arrrghh...
Err.. isit HAR KOW
Also with prawn stuffed inside dunno what skin... ok im starting to get lost on the things I have eaten. Well, who cares.. as long as they taste nice...
Ok... I do not know what this is...
But it sure is delicious.. yummy.... with pork and prawn inside too.. man.. im starting to feel that everything has prawn inside...
CHEE CHIONG FARN
I seriously do not know what the canton-name means in English, but it is rice skin with prawn, again, wrapped inside. The sauce outside is something similar to light soy sauce.. Man, this feels like prawn fiesta !!
Porridge serves with crispy dunno what yellowish stuff, and traces of century egg inside. I personally hate century eggs, but hey, since it comes with the package, I just swallow everything down lar.
Ok, this is supposed to be desert, but hey, it is warm, and I do not quite like my deserts warm. I would prefer to have something cold with the chilling effect to soothe the mouth and throat after gulping hot and oily stuff. So this counts as one of the main dishes as well. Soft egg fillings, and crumby crust on the outside.
CHAR SIEW POW
White bun with bbq pork filling. Alright this is the beginning of dishes with no prawn fillngs in them.
BEANCURD SPRING ROLLS
I would say this is my most favourite of all, selected by Diaz... Simply love the beancurd skin, and the meat stuffing inside was just tender and juicy.
ALMOND JELLY DESERT
Now this is what I call a real desert, something cold and SWEEEEEET.... ahhh..
I gotta say I enjoyed the lucnch tremendously. I seriously need to indulge myself in something nice to take off some of the stress induced by intensive studies preparation for the endless mid sem examinations. Well, I have not had dim sum lunch for quite some time, and i do miss it some how.
How much did it cost me?
Thanks to this lovely friend-gal of mine, Sarah.. It was paid for !!! Awwwhh.. sweeeeeet...
And thats me, enjoying my desert.. yummy.. ohh yummy...
Thanks Diaz for driving us around !! The lunch was indeed awesome. Man, I am starting to crave for dim sum again....
