Haaaay! :D Dimsum that’s authentic as authentic can be! T & S (Tan & Sy? Your guess is as good as mine!) Seafood Restaurant is officially our favorite dimsum place. If hubby is to be believed (and he should be! ;)), they only offer dimsum on Sundays. Now that’s something to look forward to at the end of a very long week! ;)
We’ve dined at T&S twice and both times, we stuffed ourselves silly with loads of dimsum. Three to four carts of dimsum make their way around the restaurant and I tell you, it’s so hard not to just say “Ok, we want everything!”. There’s a cart with only fried dimsum, 2 with the steamed selections and another one for desserts. On our first visit, they even had taho! I feel like a kid lost in a candy store whenever a cart stops by our table and we are asked to make a selection. The cost per order ranges from $1.75 to about $3.50. Want to see what we had on our last dimsum binge? Here’s a feast for your eyes…
sticky rice made tastier by dried salted shrimps (the size of alamang)
asado siopao otherwise known as “roasted pork bun”
shrimp and mushroom dumpling
chicken feet…a childhood favorite!
Shrimp dumpling…obviously, we love shrimp! Well, Abby’s the shrimp monster!
Hakao – A dimsum feast is not complete without hakao. Am I right or am I right? ;)
Another shrimp plate…fried shrimp on toast.
shark’s fin dumpling
No matter how full we are. We always try to make room for dessert…specially me! There is ALWAYS room for dessert! ;) We had a late lunch so by the time we got to dessert, the cart had but a few attractive choices left.

Abby loved her mango pudding.
My dessert plate. A white mouse tikoy with custard filling and egg tart with macapuno topping for hubby and me. Abby ended up with the edible mouse. ;)
I don’t understand why anyone would make dessert look like a mouse. I didn’t realize it was a mouse until it was served in front of me. Eeeew! While I was making my dessert pick, I simply pointed at what looked all too familiar…single serve tikoy. I wanted to ask the nice lady to take it back but nah, Abby had a blast with her, er, edible pet.
See? She even kissed it!
Then bit its nose off! Eeeeew! :lol:
What can I say? We love dimsum! Once a week isn’t too much, don’t you think? *sweet contented sigh*
