紐約唐人街有不少餐館。我們不知道那家好,只有依靠 Yelp 來決定。今天的午飯是廣式飲茶,我們選的是金豐大酒樓。


金豐大酒樓在二樓,餐廳很大可以同時開130桌酒席。應該是結婚請客的好地方。


餐館的裝潢還可以。飲茶的生意不錯。


推車來的蠻快的。



豆花。

皮蛋瘦肉粥賣完了。沒吃到。

大排檔種類還不少。

蝦餃,鳳爪是一定叫的。味道都不錯。

粉粿的餡菜多了。


荷葉雞一流,味道足,蒸的透,糯米軟,肉餡香,一點對不覺得油。我們又外賣一個給兒子和媳婦吃。他們在家帶新出生的女兒。

大排檔的牛肚。邊上的是荷葉雞。


豆花,糖水和普洱茶。

It’s the name of a Dim Sum restaurant in Taipei’s east district. This Cantonese restaurant dosen’t have too many items but you’ll get a good sample of popular dishes enjoyed by people living in Hong Kong. 

The name of the restaurant says it all: Hong Kong Congee, rice noodles, egg noodles and dim sum. The inscription below the name tells its customers that we have been here since 1976.


It is small but clean. Service is fast and professional. Ambience is business casual and price is super good for the area. Rent in this area must be very expensive but 1976 survives with good food, cheap prices, low margin, quick turnover, big volume and many happy customers. Many review sites give it high marks.

It has a wide selections of congee such as  pi’dan sou’rou zhou (1000 year egg and minced salty pork,) steamed chicken feet, shrimp dumplings, steamed pork riblets, roast pork, roast duck and rice topped with meat and vegetables.

Excellent. You can tell it tastes good.

Looks good. Tastes even better.

Chinese sausage, steamed pork short ribs with fermented black beans, steamed Chinese greens and an pan fried over hard egg over rice.

Day old youtiao goes well with congree.

Are you hungry for some dim sum? 

I’ll see you at 1976 tomorrow at 11:30. Don’t be late.

This 成龍 has no relation to that 成龍. I am sure of it because if the real 成龍 was to open a Cantonese restaurant, he won’t choose this shopping center and he won’t choose Chantilly either. This Cantonese restaurant uses the famous movies star’s name to attract customers’ attention.

Well, it got our attention and we went to this new restaurant for Dim Sum on a Sunday about a month ago. It looked just like any Cantonese restaurant that we have been to: about 30 tables of various sizes, roughly 120 seats and a roasting station in the back with roast ducks, pork and chickens hanging

We ordered our usual dim sum dishes, stirred fried rice noodles with beef, egg custards and steamed sticky rice wrapped in lotus leaves. They were all very good: authentic, tasty, fresh and hot off the pushing carts. The staff was courteous and helpful. There were a couple young students helping out with orders , water and tea.

The restaurant probably needs some more time to spread its names around because this new restaurant desperately needs more customers.

Chinese poem used as decoration on table top. The simplified Chinese just doesn't look right.

I also like to see it succeeds because it is the only dim sum restaurant in this area other than one in Drainsville about 10 miles away.
