RE: Dim Sum question
We finally were able to try the green log mystery dim sum. It was indeed simply spinach. It had been blanched, then with all the leaves and stems going the same direction, had been rolled in to a compressed log shape. It must have been rolled in something like a sushi mat, it was perfectly cylindrical. And dry, but still moist, there wasn't any spinach juice at all on the plate. When we chose it from the cart, the server drizzled a soy - sesame type sauce over it and sprinkled it with black and white sesame seeds. It was room temperature,and had been cut into 4 parts, each about 2". I could pick up a section with my chopsticks without it falling apart, but it was very tender and very delicious. And it tasted extremely healthy. We also had pan seared steamed seafood buns with chinese chives that were unusual. Very fluffy dough, but crispy on the bottom where it had been sauteed. Lots of great textures and flavors going on.
