Dim Sum at Best Friends Seafood Chinese Restaurant

Happy Canada Day everyone!!! It's a holiday here in Canada. There's nothing open except restaurants and tourist attractions today. My husband thought it would be a nice treat to bring the kids for some dim sum. We haven't had this in awhile and he wanted me to try this new restaurant that he had gone to with his parents. I don't know how or why the Chinese always pick odd names for their restaurants...perhaps it's just a direct translation of the Chinese version but I don't think I would have chosen this restaurant based on it's name.

Dim sum is usually served on a cart but here we had to tick off what we wanted on a little paper menu. I think restaurants prefer this method because you tend to order too much. The food came steaming hot and I have to admit it was pretty tasty.

Here is what we ordered...

Shrimp Spring Rolls

Steamed Tofu with pork filling

Fish and thousand year old egg congee
Shrimp Dumplings (har gow)
Pork Dumplings (Siu Mie)
Shrimp in Noodle (Cheung Fun)
Beef in Noodle (Cheung Fun)
Spicy Beef Tendon
Sticky Rice wrapped in lotus leaves
This is what it looks like unwrapped
Pork ribs on steamed rice
Egg tarts

Can you believe that all this food was for just the five of us?
