I have a whole back log of entries to make. You see with all the season finales on tv I've been kind of busy catching up, yes even with tivo. ;) We also made a short trip out to Vermont last weekend to celebrate pacman's b'day. Since the rain didn't stop, we spent most of the time eating so I have tonnes to write about!
Rewind to two Sundays ago. We went to Hei La Moon for dim sum with a couple friends. Having read about this on the web, I felt that we'd discovered a gem, you know a little known place that no one's been before. Turns out we're really not very in touch with the dim sum scene. Except for us, all our friends had been to Hei La Moon. Bleh ...
I thought the dim sum there was comparable to China Pearl, each place has its own specialty. The pork buns (yellow bread, not the white ones) were the highlight of my trip there! Unfortunately I scarffed them down before getting a photo.
We also had the chicken feet. I promise it sounds more glamorous in mandarin. Its direct translation would be phoenix's claw. I'm not usually a big fan since the claws freak me out! I like that at Hei La Moon, they chop the feet up into little pieces so you forget that you're eating feet :p I had a piece and it tasted pretty good.
Clams (I didn't like these at all):
We also got the shrimp dumplings (har gao), shrimp rolls (har cheong), glutinous rice and chicken in lotus leaf, and sweet tofu (tau foo fah). I don't remember the rest, guess they weren't particularly memorable.

We'll definitely be back, especially for the yellow pork buns. A good alternative to China Pearl. Though dim sum in NYC is way better!
