What I Ate: October 7, 2009 (Fortune Chinese Seafood Restaurant)

Lunch: Leftovers! I had potstickers which I reheated in a convection oven.

Dinner: We went to a dim sum happy hour at Fortune Chinese Seafood Restaurant (10901 N Lamar Blvd # D, Austin, TX‎ - (512) 835-8889‎) sponsored by Bacardi. They served Cantonese-style dim sum we tasted was better than what we had at Shanghai Chinese Restaurant (which is supposed to be the best dim sum in Austin). Some of the dishes (salt and pepper squid) were a bit overly salted, but most were decent to good. The egg custards (dan ta) weren't any good (the crust was more like shortbread instead of the light and flaky crust dan ta is supposed to have). Tina and I plan on going back - probably in a month when my parent's come to town to visit us.

Here's a lone dan ta that I didn't want to eat. In the end, I did eat it.
