|wu gok - deep fried taro cakes|
It's ok. Just ok.

One of my favorite dim sum dishes is cheung fun (very soft, crepe-like noodles filled with fresh shrimp and topped with a sweetened soy). It's an extremely simple dish that tastes about the same everywhere I've tried it, but somehow Red Pearl's version is bland, and a bit too soft.

We did try a few new things at Red Pearl - the water chestnut cakes (photo above), which were shockingly gelatinous, yet pretty good. Savory Jell-O. And the shrimp balls coated in sliced almonds and fried. The flavor was nice, but I think the extra frying made the balls a wee bit tough.
We also ate Chinese broccoli (gai lan) with oyster sauce, sliced pork belly, beef chow fun (wide noodles),
