Holiday time for me means dim sum time! I hardly go to dim sum anymore. Probably because I don't see my family enough. Oops! But when we do get together, it's AWESOME! By awesome, I mean it's filled with lots of delicious food. One of the more common things we eat is dim sum. We've fallen into a nice run with Jade Asian in Flushing. They have solidly good food there. It gets crowded. However, time it right (meaning go early like 10am when it opens) and you'll get to sit where ever you want. And the rolling carts of hot steaming food come straight to you. The only downfall of going early is that you never get to the afternoon specials. It's a trade off. Oh well.
And on to the food! Glorious food! Lots and lots of food! This is just the beginning of our epic meal. Keep reading for dish by dish recaps.
Sticky glutinous rice with dried shrimp and Chinese sausage. Really filling but really delicious. The rice is super sticky and makes it a little sweeter than normal rice. But the soy sauce, shrimp, and pork sausage help balance it out. The scallions on top add a nice freshness to it.
