Captain's Log, Stardate 01.04.2009
Happy New Year! We went to Arizona for Christmas to visit family.
We went to dim sum with my husband's relatives while we were in Arizona. I love Chinese dim sum--it's yummy! Here's some pictures:
Here's the spread, although we did get several other dishes after this picture was taken, too, so there was even more food! I have to admit I don't really know what most of this stuff is, just that it tasted good.
Captain Caffeine's plate. Looks like he had: top row, L-R: I'm not sure what that first thing is, it might be char siu (marinated roast pork), the next thing is a yummy large noodle wrapped around roast pork or beef or shrimp in a soy sauce, then crispy roast pork (the square thing at top right); bottom row, L-R: siu mai (pork and shrimp dumpling), har gow (shrimp dumpling, one of my favs), tripe (tasty but not to everyone's liking, bottom right).
Here's a close up of the tripe. Behind it is chow mein.
This is braised chicken feet. Before you knock it, you should try it! I like it, and my grandma liked it a lot, too.
This is that noodle wrap thing I mentioned above, this one has marinated roast pork (char siu) inside, and you can see the shoyu (soy sauce) sauce it's in.
MMMM that made me hungry!
