Having dim sum on a Sunday morning has always been a family tradition ever since I was little. However, it has never been the highlight of my weekends since the grown-ups at the table would spend hours sprawling over the newspaper and drinking tea leaving my sister and I bored to death. We got smarter soon enough and began bringing our own reading materials for entertainment. To this day, I still do not understand why my parents enjoyed reading their newspaper during dim sum, but I certainly understand the joy of the delicate cuisine.
There was no wait for a table when we arrived at Sun Sui Wah at 11:30 Sunday morning. Instead of the traditional push carts, we selected our food from an order sheet which allowed the dishes to be prepared fresh and steaming hot!
We didn’t order any adventurous dishes this time around, only the usual: Shrimp Dumplings, BBQ Pork Buns, Egg Tofu with Shrimps, BBQ Duck Meat Dumplings, Spareribs with Black Beans Sauce, Taro Paste Cakes and Homemade Tofu Paste.
