Chowhounds VA Get together?
Did the Reston Dim sum outing happen? Any chances of another NOVA outing? If so let me know. I'd be interested. thanks!
Hi, Alicia: Yes, a few of us did get together at Fortune for some good dim sum. A couple of folks got waylaid by a car emergency, and Mrs. W. arrived late because of a canine emergency (which turned out ok), but we had some good dim sum. Fortune maintained its streak of bringing out something I've never seen on any of our previous visits; this visit's item was something called chestnut cake. It's a square of sweet custard with small pieces of water chestnut mixed in. It's pretty sweet, so best eaten at the end of the meal with the pineapple buns and the multi-colored jello. I would definitely get it again.
In short, a typical visit to Fortune.
We definitely hope for more NOVA outings in the future.
As a member of the group that showed up for dimsum that day, I can second Bob's call on a repeat performance. It was very nice to meet some of the other posters face to face and use fingers for manipulating chopsticks rather than typing. I'm all for another outing.
