    About Time for a Chinese

Dim Sum in Earls Court

I think the thing I admire most about the Chinese is that they're hanging in
there with the chopsticks. Because if you think about it, you know, they've seen
the fork by now. I'm sure they've seen the spoon. They're going: Yeah, they're
okay. We're going to stay with the sticks

It has been a while since last time I went for Dim Sum. So looking for places I got to Dragon Palace in Earls court. Perfect lunch for a lazy Sunday, the place was quiet when we arrived but quickly started to get busy. Bright white walls and contrasting black boots. A big mural of a Chinese forest complete the atmosphere. But more important they are serving Dim Sum daily from noon to 5pm.

The list
We went big, Gauo Choi Gauo (prawn and chive dumplings), Siu Mai (minced pork and prawn dumplings), Siu Long Bau (Shanghai style pork dumpling), the classic Char Siu Bau (sweet pork white bun), Ci Yau Wong Tsin Cheung Fun (pan fried dried shrimp), Ha Dai Tze Gau (scallops and prawns), and ended with Nai Wong Bau (sweet custard cream fried bun).

The food was lovely, I love dim sum, as they say is like the Chinese version of Spanish tapas. All the dumplings were perfectly executed, a couple highlights including the Shanghai classic Siu Long Bau and a new discovery the egg custard deep-fried that was awesome.
