Last weekend, one of my good friends took me out for dim sum, something which I had never tried before! She took me to Garden City Hot Pot, located in Richmond, a few blocks away from Aberdeen Shopping Center.
The first thing we ordered when we got there was tea from a distinguished selection of tea leaves, each type of tea possessing a different quality. I opted for rose tea, which was said to relax, while my friend chose a black oolong tea, which was said to be a fatty-acid burner.
After ordering tea, we ordered the dim-sum dishes! My friend selected a variety of dishes for us including:
- 蝦餃 (shrimp dumplings)
- 腸粉 (rice noodle rolls-which came with fried oysters)
- 腐皮捲 (tofu steamed roll-which were stuffed with prawns)
- 蘿蔔糕 (turnip cake)
- 蛋撻 (egg tarts)
Overall, it was a delicious experience! <3
