Dorothy wanted some dim sum, and I thought she meant Hong Kong style dim sum initially. But wait, she's Shanghainese so I guess it was natural for her to allude "dim sum" to Shanghainese dim sum. Anyways, since the last time at Shanghai Wonderful didn't satisfy my xlb craving, we went to Dinesty.
I hadn't been to Dinesty for quite some time now, even though I really want to go there for dinner a lot of times. However, everytime we pass by it's quite packed and I don't want to bother with long waits. This time we made a reservation for lunch.
The green onion pancake (蔥油餅, $2.75) was not bad. It wasn't super oily, but I wished it had more green onion flavour to it.
Overall, everything was not bad and I really liked the rice cakes. It ended up being quite a cheap meal (around $7-8) per person, which is pretty much a steal (compared to the last Shanghainese dim sum experience at Shanghai Wonderful, which was around $12 per person). The food is good, and the cheap prices are super attractive. Plus, the place itself is pretty clean and well-renovated!
