Walking with Jesus: Dim Sum Birthday and thensome

On my birthday, my sister, father, brother and I went to Chinatown for my birthday brunch. It was a great start to the day.

We went to Oriental Garden on Elizabeth Street. I love that place. They have some wonderfully fresh seafood.

From there, my brother and I took off on foot for more quick, inexpensive snacks. We didn't have far to walk.

Around the corner from Oriental Garden is New Green Bo, which has some delicious Soup Dumplings. No dice. It was packed. So, we hoofed it across the street to New Yeah Shanghai Deluxe. The dumplings were mouth-scaldingly delicious with a wonderful rush of broth and a generous, flavorful meatball in the center.

Soup Dumplings, which are slightly amber, and Pea Shoot Dumplings. The Pea Shoot dumplings weren't as fresh and peppery as the Shrimp and Pea Shoot dumplings at Oriental Garden, but they were tasty. We really enjoyed the Scallion Pancakes, though Hiroshi later found them "a tad oily." I don't know about that.

Part 2 is next.
