Red Egg

  • 3

Has anyone tried the 'Radish Salad' w/ Roast Duck at the Red Egg (dim sum restaurant)? It's one of the most delicious, unique dishes i've had in a long while. The "salad" is composed of crispy squares of turnip cake, tiny slices of roast duck and carrots, celary served with a hoisin-style dipping sauce. Lots of great textures and flavors going on. This is one of the better dim sum restaurants i've experienced and a really special dish. What else is a 'must-try' at Red Egg?

  1. I forget the exact name, but it's the Red Egg special roll, and it's a standout. I wasn't blown away by the rest of the dim sum (turnip cakes were good too, but nothing wowed). Still decent, and enjoyable, along with fresh tasting.

      From my recent: Red Egg Shrimp Dumplings - Excellent, Home Town Savory Triangles - Very good. Durian Puff - okay but wouldn't order it again. I didn't enjoy the one item that was red bean and pork ( I can;t remember what it was called).

    2. I also thought the service was excellent - the host and waitress were both extremely polite and helpful. Dim Sum with a smile! What a unique concept. Also, the crispy seafood dumplings were great. I didn't try the desserts, but the ginger creme brulee sounded interesting. Also, i've attached a photo of the 'Radish Salad' (half eaten - it was a huge portion) and some shrimp/pork dumplings i ordered (yum).
