Now I work in the suburbs. And one of the things I hate the most about my job location is that you have to drive most days in order to get a decent lunch. So when a co-worker suggested we try this Cantonese dim sum place within walking distance, I was all for it.
During lunch, Canton Delights offers a choice of dim sum (which is wheeled to your table) or lunch entrees that you order from a menu. We went with the former, deciding that we should try a lot of them to really get a feel for whether this place would warrant repeat visits. Of the three of us, I was the only one who had no knowledge of the Chinese language; one dining companion spoke Mandarin, while another spoke both Mandarin and Cantonese. Basically, I just had to sit back and let them do all of the food-selecting.
Here's what we ended up ordering:
- Cha Siu Bau (steamed barbecue pork buns)
- Fung Jao (steamed chicken feet in spicy sauce)
- Naai Wong Bau (steamed egg custard creme buns)
- Ha Gau (steamed shrimp dumplings)
- Siu Mai (steamed minced pork dumplings)
- Siu Lun Bau (steamed Shanghai minced meat dumplings)
- Fun Gwoh (steamed veggie dumplings)
- Daan Tart (baked mini egg custards)
- Ha Cheun (rice-noodle rolls with shrimp)
- Loh Mai Gai (steamed rice with meat, wrapped in a lotus leaf)
So, while there is definitely better dim sum to be had in the South Bay, we may still find ourselves back at Canton Delights some day... When we're craving dumplings and no one wants to drive to Joy Luck or HC Dumpling House.
