Dim Sum is Fun!

Last year, I blogged about China Pavilion*, a Chinese restaurant in Pembroke Pines.  At the time, I ate there for dinner and feasted on family-style plates of Pork and Eggplant in Garlic Sauce, Peking pork chops, and Lamb Stew Casserole.  After the restaurant relocated from the corner of Pines Boulevard and Flamingo Road to the corner of Pines Boulevard and Palm Avenue, I’ve visited several more times, two of which have been during this current month!  I sure love me some dim sum.  #dimsumyumyum

On a related note, when I last blogged about Pine Court Chinese Bistro, another Chinese restaurant in south Florida, I mentioned a couple of my favorite small plates, but didn’t show any pictures, so I’ll make it up for it in this post by sharing some of those goodies — and more!  Here they are, in no particular order, and with no ratings this time…

Hargow shrimp dumpling.  One of the most classic dim sum dishes.  According to Wikipedia, the wrapper should have at least seven pleats and the amount of shrimp should be generous but not so much that it can’t be eaten in one bite.  Who knew?!

Getting My Chinese Fix at China Pavilion

It’s been a while since I’ve been out for Chinese, so tonight’s visit to China Pavilion* was long overdue.

Next up… Peking Pork Chops.   Continue reading
