Yum Cha II

Marisa & Michelle, in Australia we call it Yum Cha, some other people call it Dim Sum. It's basically Chinese tapas if you've not heard of it before. Eaten anywhere between 8am-3pm. We eat it around 10-11am. Sydney has a huge Chinese and Asian community. The different food on offer in this town is mind-blowing. I was too busy eating yesterday to take many photos but managed this one early on:

And I had bought these wontons from the market on Wednesday and made them for myself for lunch. These are typical Yum Cha food, and so is deep fried eggplant, and chilli squid and chicken feet and loads of different vegetarian stuff as well.My chicken feet shot was totally blurry and looked like a brown mess. It's my Uncle's favourite. I had a tiny tiny end, but I don't like the gelatinous texture at all.

Oh. Yes. Dim Sum I know! But it seems easier to get there. Until now I've only eaten very small portions in a restaurant.
Thank you for the explenation/pictures.
And also my well wishes (is this the right way to say it?) for your uncle

Yes a group is necessary otherwise you don't get to try everything. And they need to be open and adventurous. Life without Yum Cha would be so dull.

Marisa keep signing as Marisa OK - Anonymous is just that. I like knowing who is reading/commenting.
