Last Saturday, after my Zumba class, I had dim sum with my relatives at Omei Restaurant. I had always seen Omei Restaurant from the street when driving along Highway 7 but this was my first time dining there. I had always thought it was a very high-end restaurant that was fancy inside and expensive. However, when we went there for dim sum last week, it turned out that Omei Restaurant was just another Chinese restaurant. It certainly wasn’t fancy-looking inside and even a little run-down with traditional Chinese restaurant colour schemes.
We ordered a number of dim sum and small dishes to share. We were able to receive a 15 percent discount that day off our bill which made the meal even cheaper! 🙂
I liked all of the dim sum dishes. They were very typical and the tastes were true to what each dim sum traditionally tastes like.
The steamed spareribs were hot and tasty with just enough fat and meat ratio. So yummy!
Pretty good har gow with gooey dumpling skin. 🙂
The deep fried squid tentacles were fried really nicely. My uncle always orders this…
I didn’t try the deep fried dumpling with shrimp and pork.
The pan fried bean curd sheet was pretty good especially when you dip it into vinegar to eat.
The deep fried fish balls with clam sauce were very soft and bouncy! It was pretty good!
Yay, siu mai! This was pretty good.
This steamed beef stomach with satay sauce was really well done. The beef stomach wasn’t chewy at all and very soft. It soaked up all of the satay sauce too. 😀
I’m not always a fan of these salted sticky rice buns because if they’re dry, it makes it very difficult to eat. I found this one really well made! The rice wasn’t dry and the insides had just enough flavour for me. 🙂
This was another classic dim sum dish cooked perfectly. The steamed cuttlefish were very tender and soft with just enough non-spicy curry sauce.
Chunky and freshly fried taro spring rolls! So good.
I couldn’t believe how airy and soft these deep fried small buns were!! They go so well with condensed milk. Anyone who has tried these knows the drill.
The Hot & Sour Soup wasn’t spicy and the ingredients in it were substantial. I liked how the tofu strips were very soft.
I liked the vermicelli noodles in this! It was really tasty. The texture of the vermicelli noodles was just right for my taste.
I was particularly pleased to find out that they served us complimentary Chinese soup desserts after the meal too! They served the Purple Rice Pudding in Coconut Milk dessert that I like.
I can’t believe this was my first time here and the food was so solid and tasty! I think we need to come more often. 🙂
Their lobster is pretty good too at dinner service done 4-5 ways. Many of the local chowhound foodies rate this #1 establishment for Chinese style lobsters.
That’s great to know. @torontofood also mentioned that their crab and lobster dinner combos are great. I’ll definitely have to check their dinner service out sometime!
