Christmas Day in Adelaide and what do you do, even when on the other side of the world? Eat Chinese Food!
Adelaide’s chinatown was just around the corner from our hotel so I picked the busiest looking dim sum parlor.
Inside it doesn’t look much — if any — different than it might in the states.
Sadly, since the rest of my party doesn’t like Chinese food I was ordering just for myself and so couldn’t get that much. Had to try the classics though.
Shu Mai. Fine version. Not too gigantic (I don’t like them huge).
Steamed pork bun. I would rather have had the baked type with the sweet glaze but the filling was very good.
Scallop and shrimp dumplings. Nice. Very fresh too.
I was full but I saw XLB (xao lao bao) pork soup dumplings on the menu and had to order some up. Took 20 minutes to steam too but totally worth it.
Not bad at all from the couple dishes I had. Considerably better than the place I ate at in New York’s Chinatown last summer.
