Dim Sum Inn and Rain

place setting
Right...Aberdeen weather is sometimes ridiculous. Case in point: the rain.

It is not raining behind Robert Gordon University.

It is raining on the Gilcomston Steps and Braemar Place.

It is not raining on Rosemount Viaduct.

It is raining on Leadside Road.

It is not raining on Northfield Place and Esslemont Avenue.

Whisky, Tango, Foxtrot?

We went for lunch today to the Dim Sum Inn on George St. I'd noticed it a few times but had dismissed it as a dinner destination because the menu looked ho-hum. toosuto mentioned it, so I thought we might as well give it a chance.

ybunny and I were not terribly impressed. The place is neither a Dim Sum restaurant, nor an Inn...so you can imagine my disappointment. I had Bean Curd Homestyle and he had the Vegetable Curry. Sides of rice and Broccoli with Oyster Sauce were ordered.

The broccoli was boiled instead of stir fried, which got me into a more critical mood than perhaps was warranted...for, lo, I love stir fried broccoli and even more so with the oyster sauce. The bean curd dish was so-so, nothing great, nothing terrible. The rice was what I would normally call American short grain, an odd choice in a Chinese restaurant. The veg curry had a lovely sauce, but not lovely enough to make me rave about it.

You can see the menu for yourself here. I've had Dim Sum in Atlanta, New York, and London, so I'm probably expecting too much. Ah, well...

Meh, I say. At least there was some bean curd on le menu. I'd have gone for the straw mushrooms and stir fried broccoli.

Bad whishcuit for not calling me. You said you had something else to talk to me about...

I stayed in Meston all day and I drove home at lunchtime/hometime, so I cannot comment on the variance in the rain. None of it surprises me though.

I could believe it.

I feel like I've had the best of most cuisines in California. You definitely are not without options. :)
