A couple of my LA homies were in town for a weekend, they have requested to get dim sum for brunch, so we ended up at Sun Sui Wah in Richmond.
We ordered the usual suspects of dim sum, shrimp dumpling, Sui Mai, rice rolls lots of other shrimp based dumplings.
My favorite of the day was rice rolls with chinese donuts. The chinese donuts were crispy but soft on the inside, it had a nice chewy texture. I was happy with their version of my favorite dim sum dish.
My other favorite of the day was fish maw with shrimp paste. The broth at the bottom of this dish was really nice.
My friend ordered a steamed rice ball dish. It was meatball, rolled with rice and steamed. The meatball filling was a lot like the filling in a sui mai. I’ve never had this dish before, and it liked it a lot.
One of the desserts we ordered was tapioca pudding with red bean. I was a disappointed with this dessert actually. It came out luke warm, and the crust was rather soft.
The food in general was good but it wasn’t as good as the couple times I had dim sum here before. The services here also needed some improvement that day, the waiters were rather aloof and had little patience. After this experience, I’m not sure if I’d come back as there are a lot more better options for dim sum out in Richmond.
