I feel so sorry for you our Lunch blog readers, my photos are so uninspiring. But not to fret, my esteemed partner and lunch photographer will be back sooner than we know it. Hong had a craving for dim sum today so we hopped over to Red Egg for a rather disappointing meal. The lightness and delicacy of their dim sum was sadly lacking. The shrimp and pork shu mai were clumpy and heavy, the tofu stuffed with shrimp was stiff and custardy, not at all its usual airiness. And due to a printing mistake, the stuffed peppers are still not available. I hope this was a fluke day.
