Dim Sum in Mayfair

Weeks ago was Marisol's birthday so we went to have Dim Sum brunch in Princess Garden. Operating since 1983 this Pekinese cuisine establishment have been offering Chinese fine dining in the Mayfair area, and it’s on top of lists to have the steamer baskets. 

The Menu

We shared several dishes, including the wasabi prawns, the Princess Garden spare ribs, crispy fried seaweed, some Singapore noodles, and a few baskets of dim sum. 

The prawns were quite good, not too spicy though. 

Wasabi prawns
The spare ribs were amazing, the seasoning and flavour is top notch. 

Ribs
Marisol died for the crispy seaweed, it was perfectly executed with a nice crunchy texture. 

Seaweed
The noodles were nice, I’m used to them a bit more on the spicy side, but they were pretty good with great flavour. 

Finally the dim sum were just excellent, quite well executed. 

Dim Sum time
Pork buns
We enjoyed a great Sunday with quite good food. You can also enjoy a Bolivar cigar at the bar.

Seaweed reminds me the Seinfeld episode “The Pez Dispenser” 

Kramer: Go ahead smell, smell
Steve: Yeah, so?
Kramer: Do you recognise it? The beach
Steve: What are you talking about?
Kramer: Oh, I'm talking about the beach
Steve: What about it?
Kramer: You know the way you smell when you first come home from the beach? Well, I want to make a cologne that captures the essence of that smell. Oh yeah!
Steve: That is the dumbest idea I have ever heard
Kramer: Oh, wait, did you here what I just said?
Steve: Do you think people are going to pay $80 a bottle to smell like dead fish and seaweed? That's why people take showers when the come home from the beach. It's an objectionable offensive odour
