Claire and I met some cousins for New Year's dim sum at House of Hong, an annual tradition they were nice enough to include us in.
Thought the food was pretty good, too. Steamed shrimp dumplings, hum bow, bean curd, Chinese broccoli in black bean sauce, fried rice. Nothing too out there. No duck tongue or chicken feet.
The place was packed, which was nice to see, big groups sitting around the round tables with lazy susans that spin.
I've been hearing raves about Jade Garden's dim sum, it's on my list.
In the same neighborhood, had a great lunch the other day at Tamarind Tree. One of my resolutions is to eat at every cafe, restaurant, pho spot and bakery in the International District this year. Any suggestions?
