Best. Dim Sum. Ever.

My wife was craving sticky rice today, so we went out for dim sum at Sun Ya with frabjousdave. Besides lucking into free parking, we also lucked into Chinese New Year's. It was just one of those times when I wished we always carried around a camera as mysticalforest does.

Three red and orange dragons were making the rounds of the international district, dancing and cavorting and setting off firecrackers. A dragon went into each shop and then backed out politely, and (most curious of all), the dragons were given offerings to eat at each shop, but they had to jump up to get them. The traditional dragon food seems to be cabbage hung from a string over the shop door, together with a small red envelope of some kind.

Happy New Year!

Yeah, it pretty much goes right into my Chinatown book.

Sounds delicious and delightful. Where is Sun Ya (i.e., near what intersection or at what address)?

Sun Ya is at 605 Seventh Ave, just two blocks uphill from Uwajimaya. Big gate out front and valet parking for them as fears the parallel street parking.

Umm . . . dim sum
Gee, I wonder what I have to do today. Answer: a lot!

That doesn't mean I won't find the time to go have some dim sum, though.

Curse you, Wolf! From afar, you manage to cut down on my productivity *and* drain my wallet. ;)

Anything I can do to help. That's me.

Where's the good dim sum in Vancouver?

Re: Umm . . . dim sum
I have a few favourites located in Kerrisdale and downtown. But I'm not going to divulge them unless you come up for a visit so I can show them to you first-hand. ;)
