On 9/17/11 I got really lucky, we went to Chinatown in Oakland, CA. When I was at home I was really hungry so my Mom surprised us and took us to Chinatown to eat Dim Sum at the Legendary Palace. When I sat down at this place there was a bunch of people downstairs and upstairs. Then these carts came with lots of food that looked so good. The first set of things that we had was pork dumplings.
I had to try the chicken feet that looked disgusting but actually tasted good. A woman told us that you eat the WHOLE entire foot. My brother ate the whole entire thing, including the bones, but I did not. It seemed like it was boiled deep fried in a sauce.
Next came the sweet pork buns. Inside they was sweet marinated pork. The outside bun was baked perfectly and was literally golden. The pork buns were room temperature. I ate one because I had to eat other food.
Then a sweet came. It was a chewy sesame rice ball with sweet red bean paste inside. It was actually a little to sweet. I only like the doughy part it gives sweetness and no sweetness to it.
Then I saw this green dumpling that looked really good but it actually tasted really bitter. There was to much greens, my Mom thought there was some kinda meat in there but I disagree.
Here are some other pictures of Chinatown
My Mom took a picture of that!
