New Dim Sum Gardens

April17

If I were to estimate which restaurant in my home town, I visit most regularly, it would be Dim Sum Gardens, now in a new location on the 2nd Floor of the Asian Grocery Store, 268 King St and Logan Ave. When I worked in the Exchange District of Winnipeg , it would be our Friday constant

Three friends have an “A” list of items that we have been enjoying together for a couple of decades. During this time, it becomes a challenge to find new expluratives to describe these favourite items. As a result, I am going to let a picture tell a thousand stories (well maybe not a 1,0000)…..

dimsum1

Shrimp dumplings, pure and simple. I love when the plump shrimp are balled together with plenty of ginger.

dimsum2

Deep fried “perogies”. They have sugar in the dumpling casing that creates that sweet/salty combo that I crave.

dimsum6

Sticky rice: a wedge of rice and savoury fillings like ground meat and mushrooms.  I like this version because they do NOT include that gristly sausage that is sometimes added.

dimsum7

Sticky rice is typically wrapped in a bamboo or lotus leaf. I can’t tell which this is.

dimsum8

These are pan-fried chive dumplings. I love the pink vinegar that they are served with. I often get the abundant chives stuck to my front teeth. It takes on of my Besties to politely tell me so.

dimsum5

Pork dumplings-some ingredient in the casing adds a uniqueness to the morsel.

Bonus: I stopped on the way out at the main floor grocery and picked up dim sum provisions for mandatory Sunday supper.

(They also serve desserts like this but it is not on the “A” list).

Live simply, laugh often, love deeply.
