Dynasty Century Palace – Edmonton, Alberta

Monday, May 11th, 2015

Recently, we traveled for a day trip to Edmonton in search of a good dim sum place where we kind of stumbled upon Dynasty Century Palace which was located on the second floor of a large building right on 105th Avenue. In fact, it’s quite hard to miss! The location is large with lots of […]

Kapok Seafood Restaurant – Alameda, California

Sunday, November 16th, 2014

We went out for lunch and decided to go for dim sum – somewhere more local with great rates for dim sum at Kapok Seafood Restaurant! All dim sum dishes here were only $2.00 and the place was quite busy for a weekday! We just ordered a bunch of stuff and shared it at our […]

Silver Dragon Restaurant – Calgary, Alberta

Wednesday, October 15th, 2014

I have a few coworkers that really like dim sum at Silver Dragon in Chinatown. I have been here once for dinner many years ago, so I thought it was about time I gave them another shot – but for dim sum instead of dinner. Located on the 2nd floor, this huge restaurant seats a […]

Ginger Beef Bistro House

Friday, March 23rd, 2012

We wanted some dim sum this one day, and we’ve heard both good and bad reviews from friends and family for Ginger Beef Bistro House, but we still wanted to try it for ourselves. Normally, if it’s a new restaurant, I give it a chance plus a second chance. I like to think if it’s […]

Ping Pang Pong

Thursday, March 15th, 2012

Yes, I am aware that having Dim Sum in Las Vegas is odd, but we did it! We went to Gold Coast Hotel just off the main strip for Dim Sum at a place called Ping Pang Pong I’ve got to say, not bad at all for dim sum!! The quality of the Chinese food […]

Home Made Rice Crepes – Dim Sum Currently, I’ve been trying to make basic recipes to dim sum such that I can add things to basic recipes to make them better. Vegetarian style cheung fun can become something more when you add goodies in them before you roll up these crepes. This is also gluten-free […]

Regency Palace

Wednesday, January 25th, 2012

Dim Sum has been a difficult task to find a good place in Calgary – considering factors likeprice, location, parking, taste, etc. I had my hopes high as we came for dim sum at Regency Palace since we attended a wedding here and the food was absolutely amazing. Thinking that the food and service was […]

Homemade Lo Bak Go – 蘿蔔糕

Friday, January 13th, 2012

Turnip Cake Recipe – Luo Bo Gao Just in time for Chinese New Years, I’ve taken what I know of how to make a Lo Bak Go and tried it! Please note, I like my lo bak go with lots more filling than “go”, so feel free to reduce the amounts of any particular ingredient. […]

Great Taste Chinese Restaurant

Monday, January 2nd, 2012

It was New Years Eve, and we wanted to grab a bite to eat to kill some time – and we found ourselves walking by what use to be one of our favourite Chinese places to eat… and noticed the place had changed names. So, out of curiosity, we went into what is now called […]

U & Me Restaurant – Dim Sum

Thursday, December 8th, 2011

I’ve been meaning to try U & Me for dim sum for a long time, and we just haven’t gotten to it as it was always “out of the way”. Chinatown parking isn’t the easiest or the cheapest, so we like to go on Sundays… but, parking then is difficult as there’s Chinese school and […]
