Prince Edward Island Dim Sum

September 19th, 2017 § 0 comments

When HG/BSK lived on Sheridan Square in Greenwich Village (for one year prior to a move to Colorado) the duo enjoyed a splendid Sunday morning bike ride. HG/BSK pedaled through the weekend quiet of Wall Street, the City Hall area, and across Brooklyn Bridge (best views of New York). Brooklyn Heights gave HG/BSK a glimpse of serene streets lined with brownstone town houses and the Promenade facing the river was strolling heaven. Appetites raging, HG/BSK rode back across Brooklyn Bridge arriving at Manhattan’s Chatham Square and Chinatown. Time for dim sum and hot tea. These early autumn days on Prince Edward Island, HG and Toby, The Wonder Dog, walk along the ocean facing bluffs in front of HG/BSK’s oceanfront home (sometimes descending to the shoreline for a beach glass search). Lunch is dim sum. Chinese vegetable dumplings, pork and leek dumplings, rice noodles with tofu (flavored with sesame oil and chili oil). Plenty of hot tea, of course. HG buys Asian provisions at Global Grocery in Charlottetown (Poong brand frozen dumplings are winners). HG’s dim sum lunch is not as varied as the repasts HG/BSK shared in Chinatown. But, hey, Chinatown restaurants don’t have the panoramic sea views of HG/BSK’s PEI kitchen/dining room.
