We had Yum Cha
, and these were what we got from the carts that passed us —
First was taro puff…how could we say no???
Then ham sui kok
And hofan — rice rolls — one of my “musts” when having Chinese dimsum!
This was new for me — like tiny octopus or something. (This isn’t endangered, is it??)
Oh, the standard siomai –
And something with shrimps …
And we always round up our meals with veggies. In this case…beans!
YUM! That lunch was filling! And that was a LOT! I tried very hard to eat enough…and not filled to the brim. Was too scared to gain weight!
We spent the rest of the day just around — we went to her office as she needed to get a few things done, then did the grocery (worth another post!!) and visited Aling Mary’s Store. Her pandesal is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! Imagine a dinner roll and pandesal rolled into one! YUM! Buttery and creamy (and fatty) so we only got a few. Hahahaha!
Some stuff on Aling Mary’s shelf –
Oh, about the pandesal, I’m leaving you with a picture, but I tell you, until you try them, you will never know how gooooooood Aling Mary’s pandesal is.
In the evening, BFF’s folks took me out to dinner! Special thanks goes to Auntie L and Uncle S!! My second chinese restaurant…South Ocean Seafood Restaurant.
This was the dish they were raving about — lobster with butter and cheese. Killer but gooooood!
This is a scallop and tofu dish. The tofu was fried perfectly and the seafood was so fresh!
This was our meat dish which was so tender and tasty! This is the kind of dish you want with rice!
And our “token” veggie dish. But this is good….and shouldn’t be considered just a token dish. I can’t get over how fresh everything is in Canada!
For dessert, they served us warm bowls of mung bean soup. It was not very sweet, just a hint of and it was sooo good. So good that I had two bowls. HAHAHA!
And unbelieveable almond cookies. What a way to end the night!!
Thanks to my wonderful hosts, Aunty L and Uncle S!
