Last week, Red Egg opened its doors to dim sum lovers! A little bit to the north of the crowded Chinatown mob scene of fake watches and purses, Red Egg fulfills our desires for authentic dim sum in a modern setting.
The original Red Egg opened in 2008 as a Chinese restaurant with Peruvian influences by owner Darren Wan, who learned the true secrets of perfect Chinese cuisine from his father, David Wan, of the famous Shun Lee Palace. Now, Red Egg has redesigned and re-conceptualized the restaurant and reopens as a trendy place for a casual meal, perfect for lunch, dinner, brunch and late night noshing.
We had quick preview of the space on Wedesday, June 23rd and enjoyed delicious lychee martinis! The best is letting the lychees absorb the vodka, and at the end of your drink you get a very tasty, sweet alcoholic treat! Passed hor d’oeuvres of dumplings, egg and spring rolls, and steamed roast pork buns were there for the taking. Unfortunately, I arrived a little late and missed out on the Peking duck sliers and the signature Red Egg Filet Mignon – but I guess that will be incentive for me to return in the future!
