Dim Sum - Har Gow ()

4 years ago

One of the main dishes I order during dim sum is har gow (), which translates to shrimp dumpling.

It`s basically shrimp wrapped in shell made of rice flour and then steamed in a bamboo box. There is a piece of paper on the bottom of the dumplings to keep them from sticking onto the bamboo box. They also come in orders of 4.

You can usually tell if a dim sum place is good or not by testing out their har gow. The best way to tell is the quality of the rice flour skin. If it`s sticky and falls apart, it means that they were overcooked. The best dim sum places serve har gow that look like tiny pink gems. The rice flour dumpling should be very translucent and you should see the shrimp inside very clearly.
