I tried Dim Sum this past Sunday for the very first time. My friends and I went to MingHin Cuisine in Chinatown. I have wanted to try Dim Sum forever and was so happy to be finally enjoying it! We tried so many delicious things including MingHin’s shrimp dumpling, stuffed sticky rice in lotus leaf, pan fried turnip cake, deep fried shrimp roll, pan fried green chive cake, pork belly, shrimp crepe, puffy egg custard tart, pan fried pot sticker, malay sponge cake, BBQ pork bun, and more.
I was not adventurous enough to try the chicken feet, but the important thing is that I TRIED a variety of dishes. I know that Americans often get caught in a food rut and continue to eat the same five meals over and over again. However, it is important to keep trying new foods, cooking techniques, recipes, etc. to keep you excited about food. Many people tell me they don’t like vegetables…well, then try them a new way. Don’t give up if you don’t like raw carrots; try them boiled with Italian seasoning or baked with cinnamon! Cooking methods and different flavors completely change that vegetable or dish you are eating.
Be creative. Be daring. Be postin’ your ideas (below)!
