In Haymarket we found the Emperor's Garden. Anywhere that is opened form 07.30-02:00 must be good!
Unfortunately we were not seated at the window table as pictured in the first photo. We instead were at table 41, which is kind of in a corner and which at first seemes like it will be hard for the trolleys to access the table.
We started with some tea and dumplings - garlic king prawn dumplings and scallop dumplings. I enjoyed the prawn dumplings very much:)
Pork dim sims and prawn roll things. 'Eat the peas Kim, they're expensive!' said Alan.
Drumroll please...what we were waiting for...what we went to yum cha for....CHICKEN FEET! Oh how I adore you chicken feet! At first you scared me so much, but now there is a place for you close to my heart.
We happily ate two servings of chicken feet:) Alan is much mroe of an expert on chicken feet than me. He advised that the chicken feet were 'OK'. Not 'good'...just 'OK'....I thought they were good! :) But I have also been eating boiled peas and egg each day for tea for the last year...so....yeah...perhaps I think everything is good...
All yum cha up-ed and energised, we went next door to Emperor's Garden Cakes and Bakery:) Alan and I have some soft of Asian dessert agreement; If we're near a China Town, we must buy Asian desserts!
Yum:) I bought a sesame ball, which was unfortunately not as good as the ones from Bread Top. I still ate it though:)
And there this post ends. Interestingly enough, I will be flying to Sydney tomorrow afternoon for the weekend:) There is a chance of rain as usual, but also the chance of yum cha. So, I shall have some posts for you upon my return.
