It's the end of the world as we know it :(

Austin's finest Dim Sum location is closing at the end of the next month, apparently. I reallyreally hope this is just a rumor.

Nope, not a rumor. I went with Jeff a couple of days ago, and asked them. Apparently, one of the three partners who owned and ran the place left to go work somewhere else, and the two remaining owners decided that, since they were down a cook and they have been doing this for, like, 20 years or something, that they were going to retire.

That's very sad! I'll cross my fingers that like The Tavern and a few other restaurants, someone will decide to carry the torch.

I believe the place with the other partner is on the on-ramp of Mo-Pac, a little bit north of Far West, buried in the trees. We bumped into one of the people from Tien Hong there.

Oh, well, I'll try to get in at least one more "good times" trip there...and gorge myself on sesame balls.

I'm having a really hard time imagining what you could possibly eat there, though--even the broccoli contains animal products!

Actually, there's a vegetarian menu. Last time I went I had the Mock Peking Duck and Vegetable Dumplings. Their crushed chilis in oil are amazing!

I wanna make one or two last trips. One for Dim Sum, another for the pupu platter, mmm... delicious walnuts! Also, my last chance to have a drink in one of their tiki mugs, and I guess I will finally buy a mug to take home with me. They have such wild, potent drinks! Sadness!

And the best Chinese place in Seattle closed a number of years back. The lights are going out all over Europe, we shall not see them again in our time.

*sigh* They had the best selection. Not, I think, the best product, but the widest variety, and definately the best sesame balls. Oh, I weep for the generations to come that will not experience their sesame balls.
