Some more Dim Sum....
If you're searching around for Dim Sum in the Charleston area, there's now a Saturday Brunch on Daniel Island.
from 11:00 - 2:00.
I've had some Sum as an appetizer there but this features 20 (or more) menu items.
I checked it out this past weekend.
Wanted me some more Dim Sum.
It's on my mind because I became a sponsor on a
project to help create a local mobile
Yes, really, a young man named Chad Moore wants to fill a cultural taste void.
He has put his money where his mouth is, has coughed up most and now is seeking the final $15,000 he needs.
I made a modest pledge and receive almost daily updates.
You can be part of this venture - with great, tasty rewards - but you had better hurry...the countdown shows only 04 Days: 01 Hour:53 Minutes.
Chad is on his way back from intensive Dim Sum cooking classes experiences in Hong Kong.
His food truck is expected to start rolling here in June.
This is a well-thought out process and he obviously has great support.
The goal should easily be reached - with room to spare - in the next few days.
Here is the pledge level I chose:
Pledge $80 or more:
Advanced Early Backer - My lifelong gratitude, all Kickstarter backer updates, 25* free entrees, free bumper sticker, and an invite to a special tasting.
Estimated delivery: Jun 2014
*the entrees have just been doubled by Chad so I will get 50 free entrees!
I have enjoyed pot stickers,
dumplings, pan fried meat & veggie buns, etc. as I traveled but only a limited appetizer menu here in Charleston.
The recent Brunch at the Dragon Palace was my first time taking a "peek" at Roasted Duck.
Chad plans to have this on his bill of fare as well as BBQ Short Ribs (Asian style).
He's also looking at Braized Tofu with Pork & Peppers, crispy Spring Rolls and incredible Soup Dumplings.
Whew. I read his updates with photos only AFTER I've eaten.
Makes me very hungry.
I took all of these photos during my Saturday at the Dragon Palace.
I'm the guy you might notice who's quietly taking pictures of his food.
No flash, just a nice close-up in the available light.
Don't bother others.

Let's see, June is about 2-3 months from now....
