Super Star Seafood Restaurant, HK

Steamed Shrimp Dumplings

Hey that was pretty good. These guys are apparently a rather popular chain across Hong Kong, specifically because of a few dishes such as some little salty battered fish snacks, some other stuff based on the venomous stonefish, and dim sum that is formed in little animal shapes. Cutesy-ness aside, the food was rather enjoyable.

My favorite of the bunch was some crispy pork thing. It was a bit less refined than the beautiful one at Lei Garden, but in a good way. The skin was salty and crispy while the layer of fat fueled a smoky taste without being too oily. I couldn't stop eating these wonderful little cubes of fun.

The rest of the stuff was good too of course, including some kind of steamed custard buns, some little fish balls with a fermenting salty clam dip, and even some noodle soup in a milky white broth. Good choice for lunch today.
