It's December, and my friendly neighborhood prime broker has kindly arranged another lunch to close out the year. This year, they've decided to do the lunch together with another firm that we are friendly with, and suddenly we found ourselves sitting around a rather big table for a change - this time at Duddell's (都爹利會館).
Dim sum combination (點心拼盤) - three little items to start:
Steamed vegetable dumpling (蒸粉果) - all veg inside, which was just fine with me.
Chilled sago cream with mango (香芒楊枝甘露) - one of my favorite Cantonese desserts... Slurp.
Petit fours (美點薈萃) - the osmanthus jelly was ice, and the lotus seed paste puff was not bad, either.
2014 La Crema Chardonnay Sonoma Coast - very fruity nose, with lots of tropical fruits and sweet vanilla oak.
Many thanks for the annual treat, and looking forward to many more in the years to come.
