Jing Fong; Egg Custard King Cafe.

On Tuesday, Feb. 17th, 2009, some friends craved an exotic culinary journey for lunch. So, we decided to take them to Chinatown for yum cha, better known as dim sum. We went to Jing Fong, one of the best places to go for yum cha in Chinatown. After filling up on greasy delights and bo lei tea, we walked to Egg Custard King Cafe, which was one block over.

Pictured here are the standard siu mai, a type of dumpling with meat and mushrooms. This one also had some shrimp, as well as some roe on top. Sometimes, instead of roe, they place a kernel of corn on top. These were standard. Nothing out of the ordinary, but good.

These are har kow, shrimp dumplings. Once again, nothing out of the ordinary.

Next (and last of our yum cha pictures because I was too busy devouring) is the chun gurn, a type of fried spring roll that has meat and mushrooms inside. It was very crispy and yummy.

After being satisfied, we headed over to Egg Custard King Cafe for Round 2. H got a bubble tea. Tasted it and found that it was kind of strong for bubble tea, yet still good. Maybe it's because I like extra strong tea.

Roomie got this Black Forest Cherry Chocolate cake. He said that it was too hard and not fluffy enough for cake.

Overall, a satisfying day out. Normal, yet comforting food.
