Went to Dim Joy for dinner yesterday with 好姐妹 and PP. It’s located at 80 Neil Road, in a shophouse, within walkable distance from my office. There were various interesting bits of instructions/anecdotes here and there. For example, some information about chopsticks on the chopsticks holder, and on the teapot where it says how fast your tea is refilled is an indication of the service level, and various little snippets within the pages of the menu etc. We found these entertaining (yes, we’re that boliao).
We arrived at the restaurant at about 6.15pm. It was interesting listening to jazz music while having dim sum. XJ considers it “fusion”, and I had this inspiration and hoped that I could finally discover what “modern chinese” meant at the restaurant. Alas, I left the place none the wiser.
We ordered about 4 rounds of food, and stayed till 8 plus. We were the first to arrive at the restaurant, and saw a couple of tables arrive and leave before us. At one point we actually started calling the waitress over for to chat, which JJ thinks is what dirty old men do during their weekends. We have degenerated from christmas cake aunties into dirty old men. LOL
The food with the tiny little white and orange flower in the image above are the ones which I think are nice, incidentally they all happen to be in the right column. Haha.
