Shiki Sushi (Durham)and their sister restaurant Tasu (Raleigh) 2 for 1 rolls anytime??I usually cringe when I hear of sushi specials. I was expecting alot of rice and poor quality fish. I was WRONG!!They have a crazy long list of creative rolls. I can't find anything in DMV( DC, MD, and Northern VA) close to that crazy list. It's a fusion restaurant meaning there's hope for non sushi friends. There's hibachi, Thai and Chinese dishes on the menu but I've not had anything else besides their yummy calamari. It comes light and crispy with this delicious sweet pepper dipping sauce.

This is the first time I've had shrimp and grits. I've always thought it was an odd combination. It's become one of my favorite brunch meal especially when I'm in the south. Kris's parents took us to a little funky restaurant in Chapel Hill called Crook's Corner. The 2009 James Beard Foundation recognized Bill Smith as one of the Best Chefs in the Southeast.
Shrimp and Grits - creamy, the shrimp has a nice tangy bite to it. A lovely dish.

Dim Sum is considered to be Chinese version of English tea time. Instead of scones and cucumber sandwiches, it'll include dumplings and chicken feet to snack while drinking tea. The best Dim Sum can be founded on the West Coast. Kris's mom came to visit us one weekend in Northern Va. We took her to Mark's Duck House (that's another review coming soon). She's never experience the craziness of carts and the lines. She enjoyed everything we threw her way and went back to Durham looking for a dim sum place. She found Hong Kong Chinese Restaurant. Kris's parents are now experts and order for me when I visit. The restaurant has the carts and the Asian folks waiting in line. The test to a good dim sum place are a few dishes. The pork shumai, shrimp rice crepes and chicken feet. I myself don't mind chicken feet but rarely dine with people who would share that dish with me. There are days that the pork shumai great and others are off days. The inconsistency is one of the few criticism I have with Hong Kong Chinese Restaurant.
