sui mai - pork dumplings

these are the 2 must haves when dim summing, if you notice when they push the carts around they usually yell out HAR GAW - SUI MAI !!!!!!

BBQ pork buns and sesame balls. I have made the sesame balls a few times but instead of sweetened bean paste (can't find it) I mix hoisin sauce and peanut butter with some sesame oil and a pinch of sugar.

I love the steamed squid!!! I don't think I've tried Feng Zua (nor will I, I rub Myrtle's feet when I hold her to warm her up...chickens have a little "bulb" in the center of their feet...and she curls her little claws around my hand and purrs...I couldn't eat those!).

I have had many experiences in life, but I don't think I have ever heard a chicken purr.

I used to love going for dim sum, though I seldom knew what we were eating. I don't go any more, now that I'm not allowed soy. I only eat in Asian restaurants where the wait staff are good at English. Many of the dim sum ladies don't seem to speak any English.

I have eaten a wide variety of offerings but I am a Dim Sum Virgin! I think I just found my 2012 resolution. I would try the chicken feet and just about anything else.
I like the restaurants where nobody including the patrons speak much English. You usually found the right spot!

I don't know how else to describe the sound...but it is a soft, purring sound. Maybe she picked that up from the stray cat that visits the barn every now and again...or PF taught her that.
