First off, sorry about lack of posts, just had surgery, so I'm prohibited from a lot of food lately *uber sadface* But! I'm still alive, that's all that matter =) I live to eat another day~~
Anyhow, I know I've done a lot of reviews for this, but I just wanted to say, I went for dinner recently, and was quite disappointed in them. Dim sum is still great, but dinner . . . NOPE. They kept pushing us to order a lamb hot pot which we politely told them we didn't want multiple times, they just kept pushin' ><" Food wasn't that great either, gone downhill since my last visit *sadface* Buttt this is about dim sum =)

I actually came here right after my surgery, first meal! =) So it really wasn't that big of a deal, or the painkillers were still working, and I felt fine =P Here's the first to arrive, Wah Lun Special Baked Buns. Very fresh, they were so hot and delicious =) Made me happy. (there's three per order, but I couldn't get a pic fast enough =P)
Then came the Sticky Rice Wrap. There were three LARGE wraps! =O Great deal right there =P The rice was a bit over steamed, but overall quite tasty.
Next! Pan Fried Shanghai Rice Cake, this is one of my favorites, its so chewy and seasoned well. The meat goes well, and the veggies make the oil less overwhelming. Still a bit oily for my liking though.
Ah, another one of my favorites (even as a kid), Steamed Chicken Wraps. Can't find the "traditional" kind, but this one comes closest. Normally, it should have chicken, ham, Chinese mushroom, and fish maw wrapped in beancurd. Most places only have the chicken plus random other stuff, this place has everything but replaced the fish maw with this vermicelli thing =) Not bad. I love the hammm =D
