Early Bird Dim Sum

Very Fair Seafood Restaurant at Finch and Milliken. Newly renovated. The place is huge. $2.8 S/M/L if ordered before 11 am. I went today at 11. Long line up. Only 4 tables for party of 2. The quality and taste were pretty good. Open at 8. If you are willing to pay full price, go after 1pm to avoid the crowd.

where can I find ginger and black vinegar pig's feet

I saw them at Tong HA last week but did not look appetizing. One of the middle-age chef used to be there in the beginning is not there any more. The taste of duck marinade changed. The "charcoal" taste on the duck skin was gone too. Glad to hear you find the BBQ more than acceptable. 'Freedom Noodle' has very good pork liver too.

Hello Mussetto, For Century Palace, you need to ask the waitress to bring it out to your table. Grand lake at Hwy 7 and Kennedy has this too.

Finally found it at Century Palace at 398 Ferrier St. But go between 1330h and 1530h. Much better than Ah Fong.

In search of a great authentic wonton noodle place ?

Yau Kee is on the side near the food court exit sign. The front says Freedom noodle house. The chef always makes his broth like that. I usually order the beef tendon, pork liver, and the dumpling. The dumpling is huge. I tried taking TTC and YTR to Won Ton Hut once. It took me 3.5 hours round trip.

7 Dim Sum Danforth

I went today. If you like Markham DTF version, then you will love the XLB at 7 Dim Sum. Personally I prefer Lee Chen but will need 2 orders to satisfy my craving. Time square Northern Dumpling XLB is good too but the meat texture is a bit rough and too far a distance for me to travel. Sika Deer XLB are big but broth needs more depth.

Sadistick, Billy Bishop is about the same in terms of organic produce. I bought organic arugula a few months ago. Havent seen it back in the store. I am located in the middle of both locations. I sometime check what they have on the same day.

Kirkland minced California garlic. Pan frying it does not burn off the "Ascorbic Acid". Do I need to rinse it before use?

Shanghai shen jian bao/mantou (上海生煎饅頭) recipe [Moved from China & Southeast Asia Board]

I tried that in Shanghai a few years ago. Have you tired pan firing xiao long bao then add 1/4" of boiling water to the frying pan to finish the cooking?
