San Diego Chinese New Year Festival (Feb 2013)

I suppose this qualifies as food porn for the PG-13 crowd.

      1. Did you try the doong (or joong)? My grandma's were the best (even though I didn't like the dried shrimp & mushrooms), but the few I've had since she passed away many years ago have contained little besides rice.

          No. I try not to eat any Chinese food of any kind in San Diego.

            lol. I do remember you posting that in other threads.

              Yeah, I never liked the dried shrimps in Tszong-Zi when I was young either. But I've grown to accept them now.

              When I make them at home, its usually fatty pork, marinated Shitake mushrooms, bamboo shoots and some peanuts (and of course those damn dried shrimp pieces!).

              Although nowadays, I've grown to liking the sweet kind, filled with Azuki beans and eaten with a drizzle of honey and dusted with some powdered ginger!
