My love for good food is well known and the older I get the more I care. This has some negative side effects for my bikini body which I try to avert by increasing my fitness hours. Doesn’t work of course, but love to think I can stall ageing and weight gain by talking about how much I work out!
In the beginning of May we tried a Chinese/Dim Sum place near the Naschmarkt called Aming Dim Sum Profi. I love that they carry the word “Profi” in their name suggesting that real professionals are at work here (quite possible after what I tried). While it seems wise to make a reservation due to the size of the restaurant, we got lucky without one. The place itself is super small with a partly open kitchen. The customers come here to enjoy the food but not to spend a leisurely evening with friends. For this the place is too stark and fast-food atmospheric. Nonetheless the food is great and worth a visit.
The two of us tried six different appetizers. We started with a chicken salad and spicy pork dumplings
Then we had duck and something crispy fried with beef, ginger and spring onions.
We also tried green beans with the 1000 year old egg. I can vouch for the egg though, had no problems afterwards. Also forgot to take a picture of it. But I have on more picture from something fried again, this time stuffed with seafood. I am obviously blocking any thoughts about it because I can’t remember the exact filling, only that it tasted awful. Or maybe it is an acquired taste an I am not used to?
The place itself though I can definitely recommend! Out of the six dishes two were outstanding (chicken salad and the spicy pork dumplings) and the other three real good and only one not great! Since we only touched the surface of the menu, we have to come and sample some more! Yours, Pollybert
While reading your blog today this quote (probably) from Karl Kraus came to my mind: “Ich kann keine Eier legen aber ich erkenne, wenn eines faul ist” ;-)
You should try and find this quote in English, it’s hilarious!
