Perfect timing to celebrate Christmas and New Year with a dim sum lunch with the aunties/Joe sir, the last time we had a gathering was over a month ago at 利家盛酒家. If you remember, Joe sir got a terrible burn on his hands the last time we saw him and gladly they are perfectly fine now. It was our Joe sir’s choice to go 輝煌閣 (Royal TeaHouse Dim Sum Specialist), located at the corner of Woodbine ave. and Applecreek. Most dim sum places don’t last very long but this is one of the those restaurants that has survived for years, and I was right, everything tasted as good as years ago, some even better too. The location is perfect because it is very close to my work place, and I go to the same plaza almost every week for lunch, just not dim sum but now, this is really a good choice for me and my colleagues to kill time haha. Not to mention I have a 10% discount too, but lunch only 😛 If anyone who works in the area are interested, let me know and we can have lunch there 😀
BTW, What is Dim Sum in case you don’t know?
Dim sum refers to a style of Chinese food prepared as small bite-sized or individual portions of food traditionally served in small steamer baskets or on small plates. Dim sum is also well known for the unique way it is served in some restaurants, wherein fully cooked and ready-to-serve dim sum dishes are carted around the restaurant for customers to choose their orders while seated at their tables.
Eating dim sum at a restaurant is usually known in Cantonese as going to “drink tea” (yum cha, 飲茶), as tea is typically served with dim sum.
