See what I did there?
Last week, I was home in Houston for Spring Break.
It was a week of good, wholesome fun:
Mama's cooking, lots of sleep and TV time, and making my dad do my taxes.
(As it's going to be for the next 50 years, glad we're establishing this now.)
My birthday's coming up soon,
so my parents took me out for some dimsum - my favorite! - as an early celebration.
Fung's Kitchen | 7320 Southwest Fwy #115, Houston, TX 77074
My typical order:
(sorry I'm butchering Chinese right now...
it's a tad embarrassing.)
luomiji - glutinous rice w/ chicken filling wrapped in lotus leaves.
xiajiao - translucent, steamed shrimp dumplings.
charsiubao - BBQ pork steamed buns.
changfen - shrimp in rice noodle rolls.
xianshuijiao - deep-fried savory dumplings w/ sweet, sticky exterior
zhou - congee (I always ask for 1000-year eggs + pork)
yutoujiao - mashed taro + veggie/mushroom dumplings w/ crispy exterior.
and my sister's favorite - fengzhua aka phoenix claw/chicken feet.
We always order an additional couple of fun dishes,
but these are the ones we usually judge a dimsum restaurant by.
(The consensus, if you Houston folks are wondering,
was that Fung's Kitchen was decent, but not incredible.)
Now, go and have (dim)sum fun!
