Alumni Sample a Dim Sum Brunch in Southern California Organized by Stephanie Cheung '03
Sunday's Dim Sum Brunch at the bustling Sea Harbour Restaurant in Rosemead was a culinary coup, as two tables of Yale alumni feasted hungrily upon a bevy of Chinese delicacies carefully selected by our very own Stephanie Cheung '03. Amidst the clatter of chopsticks and clinking teacups sat bamboo and metal steamers brimming with fresh shrimp haar gow, chive and meat dumplings, pork siu maii, chicken and mushroom sticky rice, choii sum, curry fishballs, panfried rice noodles with soysauce, barbecue pork buns, miniature dan taat egg custards in their flaky crusts, sweet n sour fried tofu and last but certainly not least, spicy chicken's feet - a radiant reddish brown nicely offset by slivers of green jalapeno - just beckoning to be slurped up by our particularly adventurous Young Alums. As these rounds of goodies were rapidly depleted of their contents, our alumni chatted about all sorts of topics - from the upcoming GAME, the USC/UCLA rivalry (Bruins better be ready for the Bush & Booty!), to sharing our individual experiences at Yale and here in Los Angeles.
