Had a very enjoyable dinner last night at Prune with Luxury Girl. We started with a delicious salad of shaved celery with warm blue cheese toast (the cheese was like butta). I followed up with a whole grilled branzino with fennel oil and gros sel and Luxury Girl has a lamb blade chop with Greek salad. The staff was helpful and friendly and made the warm (hot really) evening, a little more tolerable. The restaurant is small and noisy but the I would certainly go back.

Dim Sum @ Nom Wah

We took advantage of the rainy day and went down to Doyers Street to try the dim sum at Nom Wah Tea Parlor. It turned out to be a good choice. We were seated quickly in one of the red booths and besides a short wait to pick up our order, the service was excellent. We ordered:
House special roast pork bun; cilantro & scalion rice roll; turnip cakes; sticky rice in bamboo leaf; shrimp sui mai; shrimp dumplings; taro dumplings; shrimp and chive dumplings; shanghainese soup dumplings; salt pepper shrimp; and Chinese greens with oyster sauce. Your blogger's brother declared possibly the best dim sum he has had!
