Dean Sin World – Dim Sum, Dumplings, and a Dating Epiphany

Dean Sin World - Xiao Long Bao

I drove all the way to Monterey Park. In the rain. Too early on a Sunday morning.

For dim sum.

And I finally realized, if you want something good, you might have to go to a lot of trouble.

Dumpling.

(And dating.)

But it’ll be worth it.

Black Vinegar

I thought it was soy sauce. Even though my Mother-in-Law-in-Law serves black vinegar all the time.

Or in other words, don’t judge a dumpling by its cover, or a date by its lover.
