Dim Sum

Friday Five!

From thefridayfive community:
1. What's your favorite restaurant in your city?
2. What do you like to order there?
3. What's your favorite appetizer, at any restaurant?
4. What's a restaurant dish you've tried to make at home?
5. What would make you refuse to go back to a restaurant?

1. New Jersey is a bit odd that there are only a couple of cities with pretty well defined borders. I'll use the town where I live in Highland Park. My fave restaurant is the little Dish Cafe
2. One of their super yummy omelets on the special weekend menu with grits on the side
3. I'd say dim sum but that's a meal full of appetizers so I'll go with fried calamari
4. I've tried to make homemade Chinese food since I took a class but you just can't duplicate that at home. Interestingly I was having a conversation last night with my Mom where ChiChi's came up and I wondered if there were any restaurants around since I used to love their cancun/seafood chimichangas. I have a "cheat" recipe and I'm tempted to make it. Oh and ChiChi's closed their restaurants in 2004
5. Bugs. Yeah, you know that they're in restaurants but if I see one, it sticks in my head

We would get along so well! I adore Dim Sum!

Yay! It's my absolute favorite food. On my birthday this year, my work buddy Yolanda and I are going for dim sum

We only have one place here that serves proper dim sum and we rarely eat lunch out on the weekends, but when we head into the City, it's a must do!
