Oh yeah, the titles that he gave the dishes aren't the the usual translations, though I thought they were pretty good for a newbie. Anyway, the English translations on their menu were really terrible.
great pics - the names of some of the dishes were peculiar though - is that what New Concept calls them? The 'shrimp rolls' should be 'cheong fun (rice noodles) with shrimp', the 'pork rolls' are just regular xiu mai (sometimes transliterated as shiu mai), the 'bird's nests' are taro cakes with minced pork. That last one was the most confusing, since I thought it was a dish with actual bird's nest, which is usually served in a dessert soup since it is slightly sweet.
I agree with others there is no good dim sum on the westside. Empress is OK, but really, SGV is the way to go (unfortunately, as traffic is a bitch).
Mongo - what wormhole to the 10 do you mean? I'll try anything that gets me to the SGV quicker. 40 minutes from MDR is *extremely* optimistic!
Here is a more commonly seen translation of Kevin's pics:
rice noodle roll w/ shrimp
Chinese broccoli with oyster sauce on the side
shark fin dumplings
siu mai (what's the translation? cook and sell dumplings)
steamed taro cake (not pan fried, it was just steamed)
egg custard tarts (dan tat)
baked pork buns
abalone soup dumpling
beef noodle clay pot (this was good)
green tea balls with black sesame filling
uh, in the menu it was called pumpkin sponge cake, but it was sticky rice wrapper with...I forget the filling. red bean?
chicken and rice clay pot
