Went to the Dim Sum Emperors near Phsar Thmey (Central Market).
Second floor restaurant. Nice place setting layout.
Extensive menu. Both multi page fold out and a book menu as well.
Started off with the Dim Sum for Two. Good value.
Has all the standards. Har Kow, Shu Mai, short ribs, rice steamed in leaves, several different styles of buns, etc.
Then had some more.
Roast crispy pork
Chinese vegetable with mushrooms
Orange flavor pork
Salt pepper fried shrimp
Shrimp Shu Mai
Crispy fish. The fish is pre-shaped so the garnishes sit in the center.
All that food for around 100 dollars.
But that’s Dim Sum - for two! Meant to be shared with your better half and the kids. The presentation was great - all the dishes came in a giant steamer with the lid on, the waiter lifted up the lid revealing all the dishes inside. Each dish is bite size portions of a different food.John Bingham wrote:Looks good but I don't think I'd have got past the first dish.
Didn’t have the New York Chinatown experience. No big table for 10 (or 20) people with multiple random families sharing a table.
Old ladies would push carts up and down the aisles between the tables. Each cart had a dish, or a couple. The ladies would call out what dish was being pushed. Part of fun was stopping a cart and checking out what was being offered inside. The other part was seeing what other families were eating and comparing dishes. Also drinking copious amounts of hot tea to not fall asleep while sampling different dishes. And the smell of different foods, the noisiness, the fun of discovery.
Unfortunately everything has to ordered off the extensive picture menu at Dim Sum Emperors.
And the waitress dropped the coconut cake on the floor.
