Oh, the quandary for Jews on Easter Sunday. What to do? What to do? Virtually everything is closed. If you drive within 100 yards of any church you’ll get stuck in at least 15 minutes of traffic. There are no sports on. It’s a pretty boring day.
Thus, Sam and I ventured off to one of our favorite Chinese places for Dim Sum on Easter Sunday morning. We waited the requisite 40 minutes and then went to town. For the first time, we decided to try the Cantonese favorite that is chicken feet. Let me sum it up quickly: flavor – amazing, texture – challenging.
Chicken feet have this amazing concentrated-chicken-goodness flavor. It’s really good. That being said, the texture is very challenging and this was for two guys who have eaten Asian food since toddlerhood. I can best describe the texture describing how one eats them. It’s like sucking very gelatenous chicken’y goodness from little shards of bone. Even for me, it’s not easy.
Would I order them again? Probably not, but I encourage any daring dim sum fan out there to give them a try. They’re definitely worth trying once.
