Tropical Chinese Restaurant

|
Chinese restaurant with dim sum across from Tropical Park.


What we had:

We went for Dim Sum and ended up with a delictible array of soft steamed pillows and golden fried dumplingy goodness. We had:

Steamed shrimp tucked into the softest rice noodle sheets
possible with a nice light sauce

Heavenly tender smoked pork with a generous pink ring

Fried shell-on shrimp that was nicely flavored and fried well enough to eat shell-on, but not so much that the shrimp is rubbery

Tasty steamed pork shu mai

Soft steamed pork & mushroom dumplings

Steamed dumplings stuffed full of tasty bok choi

Shrimp fried sticky rice, which had a spice we weren't huge fansof

Crazy good sweet & sour chicken

Egg rolls


D├ęcor:

Decent, if generic, with an added window into the kitchen.


Service:

Chinese ladies serving Dim Sum aren't kidding around. They shuttle you in, and the first cart promptly appears beside the table. I love the bustle of dim sum.

You're getting more than enough to feed your party and you're getting what the Chinese ladies think you should have. No argument; just sit back and let them have their way.


Overall impressions:

I forgot just how great dim sum is, and didn't realize just how much I've missed it. I can't wait to go back.
