If you can’t make it out to Chinatown, I found you a good alternative in the Ala Moana area. Forget going to Jade Seafood, check out Yung Yee Kee! We came right at opening time on a Sunday and there was absolutely no wait. We ate yummy dim sum to full satisfaction and was off on our merry way. I thought the flavors were good and comparable to Chinatown so do it!!!
Chicken Feet with Black Bean | $6.50
I know, I know. Not many of you like chicken feet, I get it. I grew up eating this which is why I am able to eat it. Juicy and flavorful, I would recommend this dish if you like chicken feet!
Pork Hash with Shrimp (Siu Mai) | $6.50
Yum, a classic and always a favorite of mine. Nothing memorable but nothing bad which is good. I would get it again because I just like siu mai.
Seafood Bundle | $7.50
One of my favorite dim sum dishes, it usually includes a piece of fish, shrimp, scallop and a whole shiitake mushroom wrapped in tofu skin (yuba).
Signature Steamed Beef Tripe | $7.50
Another dish not everyone can eat. This was nicely seasoned but had a strong white pepper taste. Good but no wow factor.
Shrimp & Chives Dumplings | $7.50
I like to get this in dim sum restaurants but I like when they pan fry it and steam too. This one is more dry on the outside, tasted good but I guess I like it more like potsticker style.
Mochi Puffs w/Pork | $6.50
Deep Fried Shrimp Dumplings | $6.00
Taro Puffs | $6.50
Good! Nice amount of filling! Tastes great.
Stir-Fried Sticky Rice | $8.50
Meh. I can make this way better. I will make this way better. 🙂
Look Funn w/Beef | $7.50
Basic, simple, good.
