Hot Off The Presses

They’re Very Very Shy

Stare at them and you will make them blush. They are Crystal Skin Shrimp Dumplings.

Dumpling Opsomania

O, thou shy little Crystal Skin Shrimp Dumpling! Thou art fairer than the morning. How my soul delights to sing. Dumpling Love is a crazy little thing!

Lucky it wasn’t there yet in the Book of Genesis. If Adam and Eve had been given it, i wonder what bigger sin they would have committed. An irredeemable event could have happened and human would have had to devised a bigger soteriology that requires more than faith and grace.

The Zhaliang (炸兩) is what stands between you and your Buddhahood. The yaotiao is as crispy as chips, wrapped inside a dewy rice roll.

The best dim sum in Shenzhen

The Laurel Restaurant has 11 branches, 7 of which are in Shenzhen. This one is located at the Century Plaza Hotel in Luohu.

It is just a 5 minutes walk from the Luohu port, so you will see a lot of people reading Hong Kong papers and hear a lot of Hong Kong chatter (if that is decipherable to you. Blessed are those to whom it is not).

Address: 2/F., Century Plaza Hotel, Jianshe Road, Luohu district, Shenzhen.
Booking: (86-755) 8232-3888
Map: Century Plaza Luohu Shenzhen
