Mushroom Steamed Buns (蘑菇牛奶饅頭)

Mushroom Steamed Buns, mantou - pigoutyvr

Mushroom Steamed Buns are probably the cutest bao you can find out there. They look just like real shiitake mushrooms, down to even the stems. They are one of the most popular dim sum in Hong Kong, and I was always amazed by how realistic they look. And guess what? They are very easy to make at home too. You don’t need any types of equipment, but mainly your hands. If you want to be more creative, you can add real mushroom fillings as well. But I promise that the plain ones are just as delicious, especially dipping with condensed milk.

Colour See See (上海本色): A hidden gem for XLBs

We are always on an adventure to find delicious xiao long baos. And recently, my friend told us about this Shanghainese restaurant on Kingsway, across Superstore in Metrotown. The restaurant has a funny name, Colour See See. We always pass by this place, but we never tried it. Unlike other restaurants, they only serve buns and dumplings. It is fairly spacious, with an open-kitchen concept. You can watch them making the dumplings fresh from outside. But I have to warn you all that I highly DO NOT recommend to visit during busy hours.

New Mandarin Seafood Restaurant (時代文華海鮮酒家): Just another Over-Hyped Dimsum Place

There is a new dimsum place opening near my house, so we decided to try it out. It is right next to the new T&T Supermarket on Kingsway and Nanaimo Street, and it is called New Mandarin Seafood Restaurant. It offers dimsum and dinner service. As there are not much Chinese restaurants in that neighborhood, it is always packed. We made a reservation for four people for 12 pm on a Saturday and waited for 45 minutes before we get seated.
