There is something so gratifying about picking little plates of moist dumplings and fluffy buns off carts that roll past your table every 30 seconds. It's no wonder that dim sum is so popular in America!
I perused Blogger today to find a good Chinese food blog, and found some that're pretty cool. Here's a link to the Gary Soup Blog- a blog about eating Chinese food. His post about eating the zodiac is very interesting, although I'm not sure if I'm ready for any barbecue rat.
Here is another Chinese food blog that I find very informative: Eating China. The recipe for whole steamed fish looks so simple yet completely sublime. My own experience with steaming seafood was when I attempted to steam two live dungeness crabs in my traditional bamboo steamer. Those little fuckers started crawling out of the steamer! I had to weigh down the top with a heavy pan and stand outside with my fingers in my ears while they shrieked their last shrieks.
I hope you all enjoy a healthy and proseperous year!
