Purple Dot Cafe

Purple Dot CafeToday we went to the Purple Dot Cafe for dim sum to celebrate Ryan’s birthday (7/24) and it was pretty good. I tend to go to only two places in Intl. District for dim sum: House of Hong and Four Seas (mainly out of familiarity), so it was nice to try somewhere new.

We found out about the place by reading a LiveJournal thread re:dim sum and when I Googled the restaurant it seemed like everyone was writing good things about it. So here’s me joining the bandwagon. I had heard of it and passed it plenty of times but just assumed that it was another trendy Azn bubble tea joint. It wasn’t until I read about it that I learned it served food. Anyway, the food was real good and the wait staff was surprisingly attentive for a place in Chinatown in general. My favorite was the fried shrimp tofu. Between seven of us the total bill came out to $62, so another plus on being inexpensive. Would definitely go there again. Now let’s see if I can get my family to give it a try.

In other news, I’ve noticed when I feel the urge to write a review of something or place, it’s generally either positive or negative, and rarely in between. (Not to say I feel strictly hot and cold on all things, just otherwise I likely won’t be invoked to write). So, I’ve created a new category on my blog called, “me gusta” and its counterpart, “no me gusta“. Kinda like thumbs up. Kinda.
