Dim Sum Craving - Satisfied!

For as long as I can remember, my brother's best friend, Jeff, has always recommended some of the best dim sum restaurants. Whenever we ate out with him in the Bay Area, we knew we'd be in for a treat. So I knew that any place that he recommended for us in Taipei would automatically mean a happy stomach. Plus, Hungry in Taipei, has written up some delicious blog entries about all that they recommended to us.

For a late and spontaneous dim sum, we ventured to Taipei 101 to try out Shin Yeh 101 on the 85th floor. Unfortunately, the place was fully committed for the rest of the afternoon. I guess we'll have to try that place out next time, and with reservations. So we took a cab to the San Want Hotel and tried out Chao Pi Ji's Cantonese Dim Sum. Our weeks of dim sum cravings in Manila were finally fulfilled here in Taipei! What a satisfying meal! From the places that we've eaten at so far, we noticed that the foods are less salty, but still have incredible flavor. That was definitely the case here, as well. I really can't wait to go back to Taipei to eat some more!

Here are pictures from our afternoon meal. Place your cursor above "Notes" to read more about each picture.
