Any interest in getting a group together for dim sum at Ocean City on Sunday, the 14th or 21st or 28th, at 9:30AM?

I'm deleting the 14th; holidays are not a good choice.

I can be in if it's the 21st or 28th, too. Valentine's weekend is a no go. The evil twin has been wanting to go to dim sum with the gang, but she'll be at her father's the weekend of the 21st, unfortunately.

Best regards,

Amanda

I'm removing the 14th as an option. So it will be the 21st or 28th.

I just learned this week that my company is sending me to the HIMSS conference in Atlanta from Feb 27 through March 4 in lieu of our chief engineer who cannot fly due to health issues. Now I can only attend if it's on the 21st.

Coming:

SarahWS

ariel88
Amanda
Superdog
tsw51
jafar + 1

They have one table that can seat 15, so that will be our limit (unless be get so many that we can have two tables of 10). Do any of the above have +1's to add? Anyone else interested in coming.

Current Total = 12
Limit = 15 or we must have another 5 to reach 20

This is our next event and I'm sure looking forward to it!!! I hope their dim sum is as good as everyone says it is. Will there be soup dumplings? Will there be har gao, shu mai, stuffed eggplant, and sauteed dry string beans? Whether they have these items or not I'll be there to hoover down whatever gets wheeled our way, no doubt!

Best regards,

Amanda

their dim sum is at least on par, if not better, than Wong's King. They have the usual stuff available all the time: har gao, shu mai, chicken feet, spare ribs, tripe, steamed beef in rice noodle, congee (they have fried chinese donut to go with the congee! yum!), char siu bao, etc. I've seen the stuffed eggplant a few times, and i've had to ask for them to be reheated. They're usually pretty accommodating about that so don't feel bad about asking. I've never seen soup dumplings there though.

i think their service is better / friendlier than Wong's :)

Have fun and good eating!

Mmeerino, welcome to the Portland Food board. We are still below 15 so you are welcome to join us. It looks like this is your first event, so remember to show up on time (9:30am), be prepared to share and meet a lot of friendly food lovers, and bring enough cash to cover your portion and any drinks you order. It will be great to meet you and introduce you to Portland food events.

I doubt you'll have any trouble finding us, as Ocean City is empty at 9:30 am when they open, but look for the large table of non-Asians. If you're not sure, ask the staff to point you to the Portland food table as they know us from prior events.

I'm going to send out the reminder email with the usual info, so everyone remembers that Sunday is the morning of dim sum goodness! Get your taste buds ready..
