Technical discussions are always better with food. Eby found an excellent place for our discussion with Canton House. It's a relatively small restaurant attached to a very large Chinese grocery and we greatly enjoyed our dim sum lunch.
The grocery has a full selection of items for Chinese cooking: fresh fish, vegetables, meat, sauces, spices.
Our lunch combined a dizzying array of dishes so I can only go through a few highlights here. The oysters were very fresh and with a wonderful sauce. The fried octopus were crunchy and savory, a real delight. The shrimp dumplings were outstanding. And I was a sucker for the scallion pancakes. Here are some photos.
