We went back to Capital Seafood for dim sum again. It's expensive, and the food is just ok. But it's only like 2 minutes away from where we live. So here we go again.
蝦子燒賣皇 Pork Shiu Mai ($3.25)
Gotta have my Shiu Mai when I have dim sum. If I don't have Shiu Mai, then it just doesn't feel like dim sum for me.
金都蝦餃皇 Shrimp Har Gow ($3.25)
Shrimp Har Gow is another item I always get. The shrimp Har Gow at Capital was pretty good.
香茜叉燒腸粉 BBQ Pork Rice Noodle ($4.25)
Last time we had Shrimp Rice Noodle. This time we ordered BBQ Pork Rice Noodle. I like this one better because they added cilantro with the BBQ pork. We like cilantro!
蜂巢芋角 Deep Fried Scallop & Taro Dumplings ($3.25)
Dr. P picked Deep Fried Scallop & Taro Dumplings because neither of us had tried it before. The crispy layer was tasty. Inside was a layer of sweet and creamy mashed taro, then shrimp, meat, and scallop. Yum! We like this one a lot.
金蒜蒸排骨 Steamed Spare Ribs with Garlic ($2.25)
Steamed Spare Ribs with Garlic. Just like last time, it was really oily, but tasty.
豆腐花 Sweet Tofu Soup ($2.25)
Last time they gave us seperate syrup to add to the Sweet Tofu Soup. This time they already added the syrup so the soup was sweet.
I really like the service at Capital Seafood. Everyone was friendly and always smiling. But I still think the food is pricey since I am more used to the SGV dim sum price. Is there any other dim sum place in Irvine besides Capital Seafood?
