Chicken Foot - Chicken Foot

What's that?

Wow, what a busy weekend it's been. This Chinese New Year stuff is tiring for sure!

A group of 10 of us made our way to Chinatown yesterday to fill up on some delicious and scrumptious Dim Sum.

Have you had Dim Sum? It's total organized chaos. That's how The Boyfriend described it last year and it's the perfect definition for it.

We had no more than arrived at our table and taken off our coats when the carts started arriving. My friends trust me (for some reason) to do the ordering so in a matter of minutes the lazy susan is filled with tea, dumplings, noodles, and all sorts of delicious mixtures. My favorite of all Dim Sum items are the BBQ Pork Buns - last year we made the mistake of not requesting them as soon as we arrived and they were all gone.

First thing this time I asked for 3 trays of the BBQ Pork Buns - heaven in a bun.

I promised I would order Chicken Feet.....and promised that I would try you'll have to click on the picture to see what really happened.

Did you enjoy your Chinese New Year?

"The chicken feet were cooked for TWO HOURS!" (According to the Chinese waitstaff.) The texture was rubbery and I couldn't get past the fact they were really chicken feet! Thanks for the great time, Michael!

The Dim Sums look great, but the chicken feet don't seem to have made it to the top of the list of "must have" ;)

Happy to hear that you boys had a great time.
