Shanghainese Dim Sum spread..

We had Dim sum with a Shanghainese twist
last Sunday..

and I was too happy to have Pu Erh

served by a master..

For our appetizer
we had
Drunken chicken

and then came the steamed Shanghainese dumpling,

and this had a non traditional twist to it..
this was "supposed" to be a minced pork and truffle dumpling
( it tasted pretty normal though..)

taken with slivers of ginger and vinegar..

after which we had the..
crispy radish pastry

and for dessert, we had the Souffle, 
a typical Shanghainese dessert made from egg white with red bean and banana

Happy Tea Tuesday
remember to hop over to the Tea Tuesday bloggers for their tea adventures....

You always have the greatest tea posts. I appreciate how you share your experience with us, since this is something I'll never have a chance to experience. The tea master looked intent and the surroundings were lovely. Dim sum and and Pu Ehr sound like the perfect Sunday lunch. Happy Tea Tuesday, dear friend.

What a great meal! So wonderful to enjoy traditional dishes in traditional style! Fun! I wanted to try a bean dessert at one of our Japanese restaurants a couple of weeks ago but wasn't too sure about it so went with the green tea ice cream and banana tempura. :) Have a great rest of the week. Tammy
