David Chang's Ma Peche: Rice Fries recipe

I had lunch at Ma Peche last week and had the pleasure of trying my pal's rice fries that came along with his steak. Does anyone...ANYONE...know how these are made? They were about the size of steak fries, but instead of cut up potato fries these were made from rice.

Oh and our bill was remarkably inexpensive for the amount we ordered and the amazing quality of the food. Two people - 9 or 10 items. The total was just about $40 w/o tips.

All I can say is: w o w. I've had the standard dim sum fare all around the US - San Francisco, Chicago, Dallas, and Houston and even in some other parts of the world. Dim Sum Go Go offers an incredible variety of dim sum items without the greasiness found in a lot of Chinese dim sum restaurants. What is pretty unique about Dim Sum Go Go is the little twists they put in their dishes. E.g., the hargow "skin" is tinted a little green thanks to a bit of Chinese parsley. The parsley adds a little zip to the super succulent shrimp. The one item I wasn't too crazy about was the chive dumpling. Tasted more like grass than chives. The turnip cake was excellent! We went around 12:30 pm on Saturday and while it was definitely busy, we were seated upstairs so we didn't have to wait. I would highly highly recommend Dim Sum Go Go and go back again and again..

Does anyone have any suggestions for dim sum in NYC on Saturday, June 26th? I've read reviews of Dim Sum Go Go, but I wasn't sure if it was authentic or just a walmartized version of chinese dim sum. Any feedback or thoughts?
