LF: fried taro dumplings (wu kok) and other dimsum takeout

Guzzler Apr 27, 2010 09:25 AM

Where can I buy these in the GTA take- out? I can get all the usual dimsum, except wu kok, large crispy bowties, daan kau (like a fried eclair) takeout, but am really craving some. Even dimsum places that have them for yumcha don't sell them as take-out; was told to wait for them to come out on the trolleys and not able to order off menu. As this could take a few hours, wondering if anyone knows a place?

Busy with family caregiving, so can't wait for yumcha table.

    I'm not familiar with the other ones on your list but I've taken out decent wu kok (hairy footballs, as we like to call them) from both Dynasty and Cha Liu. Is the daan kau the same as the fried crueller thing you eat with congee? And please tell me more about those bowties - are they anything like fried wonton?

      Bowties are called "daan saan". They're deep fried, crunchy although coated with syrup
