Mr. D and I have been on a quest of Shanghai cuisine lately. It was his birthday a while back, and we decided to head to Lynn Shanghai Cuisine, a restaurant we have planned to visit for ages.
Last week I sent this message to Mr. D via WhatsApp: `there is a new Yum Cha place in Newtown’, and I immediately received a whole bunch of googly eyes emoji from him. Steaming dumplings, crispy little fried goodies, and copious amount of tea. Who wouldn’t be happy?
Chatswood is one of those suburbs Mr. D and I like to frequent together on our days-off but we seldom eat there (except for Tim Ho Wan). The other day we were walking down the main street in Chatswood around dinner time, and all of a sudden a craving for dumplings struck us both! This was when we remembered about New Shanghai, a dumpling spot our friends have told us ages ago.
Happy Sunday! I hope you are all having a lovely weekend so far. Speaking of weekends, Yum Cha is definitely one of the most classic family activities for Hongkongers to do on Sundays. I was so excited the famous Hong Kong Michelin-starred dim sum restaurant, Tim Ho Wan, has finally hit Sydney. Ahead was my first visit to their Chatswood branch with Mr. D a while ago.
