i've never been a big fan of chinese food, probably because there is sooo much bad chinese food out there (being the oldest ethnic food in the us, there is bound to be!). but i am quite impressed with May Flower! (2156 University Avenue, 510.883.9788)
i stopped in for a quick lunch today and was happy that they serve dim sum (my fave of all chinese food) all day long!
but i was unprepared for the level of quality and freshness- amazing!
for example, i've always hated egg drop soup- it's always such a slimy mess. this egg drop soup was fresh, light, infused with fresh corn flavor and NOT slimy at all!
my friend & i shared 4 orders of their dim sum (they have a limited dim sum menu, but the quality more than makes up for a small selection).
1. shui mai (4 pcs, $1.98) amazingly fresh- the pork puree has whole shrimp in it! yum!
2. pan fried chive dumplings (3 pcs, $1.98) inside the rice wrap was shrimp, ginger, and LOTS of chives. really amazing fresh chive smell when you opened the dumpling.
3. steamed bb pork buns (3 pcs, $1.98) they must make them there. the filling was fresh and tasty- not like the frozen ones from other places!
4. shrimp dumplings (4 pcs, $1.98) whole shrimp, not steamed puree.
i would highly recommend this place, and guess what, they deliver for free!Posted by daniland at May 19, 2005 02:41 PM
