|This little dumpling was full of bay scallops and shrimp. I think these are|
steamed like most dumplings, but then they crisped up the bottom of the
dumpling to make it crunchy. It was pretty tasty.
|I'm not sure what to call this in English, but it is a thin noodle|
wrapped around fried fish. The standard wraps are pretty thin
and filled with beef or shrimp.
|While we were waiting for our table there was a man who|
was making Dragon's Beard candy. I had never heard of
this before, but they look like little silk worms so I didn't want
to eat them. The man who makes them starts out with a
semi-hard block of brown sugar. He pulled the sugar similarly to how
you would make noodles. After many, many pulls, the sugar
becomes very fine and stringy. To keep the strands from sticking
together, he pulled the sugar in something that looked like powdered
sugar, which is what gives it the white color. Inside the roll
are chopped peanuts.
