Thanks again to @seal for organizing another fun and tasty gathering of HOs! I’m still full… West Lake (in Matawan, but actually Aberdeen, but…Matawan) is doing real-deal dim sum for sure!
@seal, @BossaNova, @eleeper and their hubbies and @joonjoon and I did some decent damage, imo. Here’s what I’m remembering…others should def chime in!
We had a mess of (all very good) shrimp and shrimp/pork and spinach and shrimp dumplings off the carts, beef and pork ribs, pork buns of multiple varieties (white, ‘baked,’ and the best of the bunch, which was triangle-shaped and in a flaky crust), a regular order of Chinese broccoli, one of pan-fried noodles w/chicken, and one of clams in black bean sauce. And for dessert? Watermelon (did we ever figure out what was in that?) and some phenomenal egg custard tarts.
Needless to say, I still haven’t been to Shanghai Bun, but today was NOT the day after that feast!
Great seeing you all and I’m looking forward to sharing more meals with you…
ETA that I hit Reply on my post, and @seal’s appeared–at the exact same time. Also, I’m going for a WALK.
