A Festive Little Dinner

Gentle Friends, since it was Chinese New Year we decided to go out to a "new to us" Dim Sum and Hot Pot Restaurant to celebrate...

... called Dragon Beaux it was a real treat and fun night...

... this place used to be a really funky Diner a few years ago but has now been turned now into a beautiful restaurant... it usually has a line of folks down the block to get in.... we had early reservations so when we got there we were seated within minutes...



... the menu is extensive, thank goodness there were lots of pictures and we had done our homework before going... we went for the Meat hunter and ordered a few Dim Sum.....

all the meats are frozen so that they slice easier and are ready to go with very little waiting...

... the whole place is really lovely with something to look at everywhere...


... in our divided Hot Pot we had two broths for cooking... on the left was a spicy Thai Tom Yum and on the right a really nice Beef Bone Broth...

... the first things out were the Grandma Wontons....

... then came some fun Dim Sum...

... then some of the sliced meats.....

... then some Pork Paste ... this stuff you scoop off bt by bit into the broth to cook like little dumplings...

... on each of the tables are sauces for dipping the cooked meats and things... they are two chili sauces, a sesame Peanut Sauce and a Satay Sauce along with a dark soy sauce with herbs...

.... with the check came this assortment of cookies...

... Mike got Rootbeer and Chocolate Chip...

John Got Marble Fudge and Mocha Chip, I got Raspberry Cheesecake and Coconut...  
the cups we each two scoops...

... and Rico had a Cookies and Cream shake!!  A super wrap up to a fun evening!!

This restaurant looks amazing, I haven't seen one like this in England. I love ice cream too, my favourite flavours are coconut and also elderflower. x

Those dishes look delicious. I have never done Dim Sum though my son keeps trying to get me to go. The ice cream looks even better. Oh my mouth is watering.
