Winterlicious-dyNasty Chinese

  • d

I was excited at the thought of a $10 dim sum and lunch combo (4 courses plus rice!), but you get what you pay for here. The soup tasted like dish water with corn starch and many Red #5 and Yellow #7 dyes, which reappeared in the Sweet and Sour and the custard dessert respectively. The dumplings were microscopic and lacking flavour, and the vinegary chicken recalled an item from the late Garlic Pepper (RIP) menu of 'funny-tasting chicken'....yet somehow this place was lined up out the door....go figure.

    There is no such thing as "high end" Chinese food, just a higher price. I've tasted items from both the regular menus at dyNasty and LiWahHen and there's nothing special about them. Their Winterlicious menu sucks when compared to others.
