This is the second of three Dim Sum restaurants I plan to visit on the island of Montreal. When it comes to Dim Sum, you need to know when to show up. Dim Sum usually runs from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. If you want to avoid the rush, you come either early or at the tail end of the service. We showed up just before 2:00 p.m. We suffered a bit because the service seemed rather rushed. From the second we sat down, dishes just kept on circling the table. The restaurant itself was a quarter full, so it wasn’t that busy. Eventually, the push-cart staff stopped their rounds to sit down and eat. That didn’t bother anyone since most tables were done eating. Our whole experience at this restaurant took a mere 20 minutes. My last Dim Sum experience in April of 2011 took 45 minutes.

Shrimp Cheong Fun w/o sauce

Shrimp Cheong Fun with sauce

Tried: July 7, 2011

These have become one of my absolute favorite dishes in Chinese cuisine. The shrimp contents are quite tasty and it goes down really fast. If you fold it nicely, you can fit it all in one bite. But then again, that’s how a slob eats. It’s usually better to cut them into halves.

Beef Cheong Fun with sauce

Sui Mai

Tried: July 7, 2011

This is usually one of my go-to dishes, but this time, it did not deliver. It tasted like it was made from a restaurant across the street. It left another funny aftertaste.

Har Gau

Tried: July 7, 2011

This is another one of my all-time favorite Dim Sum dishes. This time, it lived up to the hype. The shrimp contents tasted good and we ordered two containers, which I was more than happy to take down.

Dumpling w/Shrimp and Greens

Tried: July 7, 2011

This is the first time I tried this dumpling. I’m unsure as to what it’s called, but what I do know is that it tasted good. The addition of the greens added to the power of the shrimp and casing.

Smashed Vegetables

Tried: July 7, 2011

According to my sources, these are vegetables smashed together. I may be completely wrong, so please correct me if I am. This had no taste and was one of the hardest dishes to finish for the table.

Chinese Style Egg Rolls

Tried: July 7, 2011

This looks like a spring roll, but it is filled with egg roll contents. This tastes much like an egg roll and I had no complaints. The sauce is something that you can get at any ordinary Chinese take-out restaurant.
