Finale for Foodoofus Dim Sum Tour: King Hua Restaurant

“The clock showed 10:31am, I think I made the right move.”

Nowadays, many people have this common idea being fashionably late is acceptable to most events (unless of course you RSVP’d your payment in advance and its something you really enjoy). I decided to pull the bait and switch just to get people out of the habit of lagging in attendance. It worked and although people complained they were ready to finish this tour off with a traditional (and yet modern approach) of Dim Sum, enter King Hua Restaurant.  I know many people would expect me to dissect the entire experience in general, but I’ll let the pictures do most of the talking this time around.

We sat down in the restaurant and the interior looks like this:

Within a good 15 minutes we finally ordered some tasty treats for the taking (I’ll be filling in the missing names of dishes as soon as I get them confirmed with attendees and/or those of familiarity with Dim Sum).

After eating many of these dishes we noticed a few nuances of this place compared to other Dim Sum experiences we had in the past. We’re talking “sticky wipe downs” (blame the sticky Char Siu Baos, not pictured due to immediate consumption before photo taking) to offering pitchers of water in the form of…

Mr. Lee’s “Water Pitcher aka Styrofoam Goblet”

Overall, we had a great time, eating tasty food and entertaining observations of King Hua’s restaurant work flow. Here’s to enjoying more fun food tours in the future!
