I go out for dim sum regularly, but I'm stumped when it comes to the desserts! I stick with the little custard tarts and the sesame balls filled with bean or sesame paste. Can anyone shed some light on some of the others? What are the opaque jelly cube things? I'd love to know your favourites so I can get sampling!
One of my favorites are the sticky white triangles. I think they are made from rice flour. Some of my friends like mango pudding or the sweet tofu.
In regards to the opaque jelly cubes, are they kind of greyish and have little bits of something in it? Maybe water chestnuts? Not sure of the name, but my family makes these at home during holidays and I love them.
Something else you may want to consider as the days get hotter is to go out and get some shaved ice...so refreshing.
mango pudding, warm tofu custard, pineapple buns (no pineapples in them but crunchy tops and custard inside), red bean soup w/ little mochi balls, there's that sweet congee w/ the dried fruit (I think it's called dragon's eyes in English).
I could probably eat a whole dimsum meal out of desserts...
