DOT COM DIM SUM at KIRIN Restaurant in Richmond BC

First of all, Happy Canada Day today everyone! You've never looked so good Canada! May we all raise a beer to the country we hold dear! ๐Ÿ˜€

Even though yesterday wasn't Canada Day, it was nice to have a get together with the local Dot Com Crew for another exciting DOT COM DIM SUM Adventure. I had wondered if the blue furry giant at Canada's Preferred Webhost, Blue Fur, would pick up the tab for a future adventure. Well, it looks like this Dot Com Dim Sum Adventure would also be sponsored by them so thank you Gary!

Today, we had a turn out of eleven hungry Dot Commers.ย Going from the left to right from the bottom, we have...

Apparently, Kirin Restaurant is known for their chicken feet.ย  I'll eat a lot of weird things but one of the things that I've never brought myself to eating is chicken feet.ย  So of course, we not only had the pickled variety, but we had the braised variety as well which the Root of All Evil sucked down gleefully as everyone else just stared in disgust. We know he ordered them on purpose. We're not sure if he chewed with his mouth open on purpose though ๐Ÿ˜†

Pickled Chicken Feet

Of course, besides chicken feet, we were presented with a number of other tasty dishes that pleased everyone's taste buds...

Chinese Egg Tarts with Flakey Pastry

Rice Rolls with sauce and special meat filling (I think it was scallops this time)

Fried Bean Curd Rolls with Special Filling

Chicken Pork Buns

Congee with peanuts, lettuce and green onions

If you're wondering why the pictures from John,ย Ed and Michael's posts are the same,ย it's because they mooched off my stash.ย  Where are my photo credits guys? ๐Ÿ˜›

Missing in action were the deep fried chicken knees which along with the chicken feet, we believe, are discards from the KFC up the street.ย If that's true, they'd make 100% markup even if they sold each dish for a buck! I guess it goes to show, one man's junk is another man's treasure! We also had Pork Siu Mai and Har Gow which are staples of the Dim Sum Diet.ย 

I'd like to thank Gary at BlueFur once again for stepping up and absorbing the $200 bill that came at the end. You can come to Dot Com Dim Sum anytime! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • You know, I stole your photo too.
    Here's the credit I gave you:


    • ๐Ÿ˜†

      Nice meeting you the other day Erin ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Leo

    You gotta let me know when these things happen, Stephen. I was home alone eating microwaved European wieners in whole wheat wraps ๐Ÿ™

    • Something about you sitting at home alone with European Wieners seems wrong...

      • Leo

        Hey man, they taste good and their so easy to make.
        Uh . . . LOOK, a UFO!!!

  • Man, these dot com dim sums seem like you guys have a blast. Tell you what, next time you have a dim sum outing, I'll eat your chicken feet for you!! Loved the descriptions of the attendees, "LD Employee of the Month, Ed Lau"...I'm sure he'll love that! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    • I think he'd love me writing positive comment cards and sending them in on his behalf. They'll make him work more due to his "Awesome" customer service ๐Ÿ˜†

  • I'll agree with the discards portion.... I can accept not wanting to waste the feet as a reason to eat them, but how does that translate into paying a restaurant to cook them for you?

    But the rest does look good, and I do need to go into Vancouver on Wednesday...

    • I don't know. I've never ever been into chicken feet. Something about chickens walking around in their own crap all day probably has something to do with it.

      • Leo

        But they crap dry pellets. It's like walking on Grape Nuts.

        • It's still a Shitty Deal ๐Ÿ˜›

          • Leo

            -slaps forehead-

  • I'll give you photo credit when you give me credit for copping my blog style with the list of attendees, including parts of each description ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Photos trump style! They are worth a THOUSAND words a piece you know ๐Ÿ˜›

      • But you ripped my title too! No one looks at photos if the title isn't tantalizing. I've updated my post regardless, because I'm a good person. :p

        • No way. That's old because the first time we had Gary at Pho a I used a similar variation. So I'm just ripping myself off =)
