went to chung shin yuan for brunch with yesterday since my last visit from 2 years ago. very packed jus like i remembered.
house made sweet soy milk. chinese soy milk tastes diff from american soy milk that you can buy from grocery stores. it has a stronger soy bean taste.
you tiao – chinese fried dough – i like to dip this in the soy milk
soy bean noodle salad and seaweed salad – love the soy bean noodle. refreshing
shao bing with five spice beef sandwich – one of my fave thing to get. the shao bing has a crisp texture and the beef is flavorful. sandwich is nice and light.
taiwan vermicelli soup with chitlins.
pan fried white turnip cake – these have a diff texture and tasted more fried than you can get from dim sum places. i prefer ones at dim sum places.
steamed spiced spareribs with sticky rice? – another one of my fave!!!!!!!!!
xiao long bao – soup dumplings. no soup inside. fillings were dry. i wouldnt get it again.
had a great brunch at chung shin yuan overall. food was very solid. they only offer brunch on weekends and its a guaranteed a wait. Shangri-la in belmont also offers brunch but i prefer chung shin yuan at any time!
