Back with Goldfish prawn dumplings

I am finally back, though not fully as I am still occupied with some moving and stuffs like that; but I am gonna try to resume my blogging mode as soon as possible to normal:)

It's been a really busy week, and I am sorry that I really was unable to update though I thought I could squeeze in some posts in-between:(

Anyway, I am finally back today, and I have some cute stuffs to share:)

The post title probably triggered that curiosity in you; and some may have already screamed, "WHAT, call the SPCA on this, goldfish are now made into dumplings?"

Well, hold that thought, because no goldfish were harmed in this cute little dim sum introduced in my local dim sum joint in Penang, as you will see in the following.

(This is not a post on the restaurant, but rather on the interesting and good dim sum I tried and liked. Anyway, I have posted a lot of times on Loong Kee restaurant in Penang, and there will be more full-length posts on them soon too:)

The restaurant, Loong Kee is an old-fashioned coffee shop style of dim sum restaurant located in the central of Penang town and is one of my local dim sum haunts.
I have tried most of their dim sum and you can find that I have posted on their dim sum more than once if you click on the dim sum category found on the right side of this blog.

They came up with a new creation of prawn dumpling last two weekends (they only serve varieties of prawn and seafood dim sum on weekends and public holidays).

Introducing to you, the Goldfish Prawn Dumpling! (RM3.50)

The prawn dumplings were made into goldfish-like shapes and definitely not using goldfish as an ingredient itself!

See how they shaped the crystal-like outer wrapper into the goldfish shape?

They even added wolfberries for that goldfish popping eyes effect!:)

Cute? They tasted good too!:)

If you are not into the deco for dim sum, they serve the normal prawn dumplings or you can opt for something like this too; with the 'Siew Mai' wrap.
They call this 'Har Mai' (prawn dumpling in Siew Mai style)

Besides prawns, I love the simple red chili stuffed with fish paste with the fermented soy bean sauce in the local Yong Tau Foo style:)
