Mia Hungry Long Time!

Dim Dimmie Dim Dim (Sum)

It was one of those days. I woke up with an insatiable craving for steamed meat in baskets. Dim sum, babes!

I love, love, luuuurrrrrvvee (imagine me purring here) dim sum! We Asians prefer the savory stuff for breakfast to those sweet syrup-drenched dishes you Emricans eat. Pancakes and french toasts? Yes, they can be absolutely delicious and I certainly have fond memories of eating them (Usually made by dangerously sexy breakfast companions, meow!) (Note: this really only happened twice, but I wanted to seem in-demand, rawr!), but I’d take dim sum any day.

This particular day, I woke up STARVING. I grabbed a friend and off we went to the closest place to my apartment that would have an authentic dim sum experience: Brooklyn’s Chinatown.

I should just really call this whole site the dumpling blog. The Blumpling. I think that has a nice ring to it, right?

(Soup) Dumplingtown!

This post is dedicated to my friends miss Dewi (aka Debon) and miss Yuli, who introduced me to Joe’s Shanghai a few years ago. I don’t remember when exactly, but I remember that it was a glorious pork-broth-y beautiful day.

Gentlewomen and gentlemen, I am so proud to be able to share with you this magical experience. I think I started this blog solely for this moment. If you’ve been there already, we are now soup sisters. Or soup siblings, if you’re one of those unlucky ones who have been born a man. Boo. If you have never been there, fasten err loosen your seat belt, and let’s go!
