@nkaggarwal1,
You're missing out on some great food. Dim sum is not only good food with many turf and surf flavors and textures, but they're fun to eat with family and friends. Also, you don't waste food. You can take home what you don't finish at the restaurant. There's always chow mein and fried rice for your carbohydrates. I love charshu bau (bbq pork bun).

Dim sum is overrated and relatively pricey.

@tsarstepan,
I'm not sure what you mean by pricey, because I never, personally, worried about that.

I can only assume that you never lived paycheck to paycheck and considering how much international travel you post about here and on Facebook? You literally are in the middle or upper middle class.

Sharing tapas and dim sum can be pricey when you're forced to evenly split a bill where you didn't eat from every plate served.

Not dismissing you or resenting your economic situation. Just making note of it. I, myself, am not in that financial situation and likely never will be.

@tsarstepan,
I graduated from La Choy and ramen in college to motly Szichuan and Fukien today. Yes it is pricey and I see that as a function of "lets see what we can get away with charging these tourists" Like Koby beef (I know its not Chinese) but I can taste a much more delicious"beefness" from a grass fed ANGUS thats US grown and not fed the BS crap that is required by Koby boys. Or like Foi Gras, You dont need a sixpound liver from a force fed goose to make delicious terrine of duck or goos liver.

MUCH of the relly xpensive crap they serve in the big cities is the result of marketing not real tlent.

Ive had dim sum in Wilmington Del that matched anything I had in San Frnciso OR STOCKTON. (Only differences were the prices.

MEXICAN food is getting taht way now

I have lived that way after I graduated from high school. I moved from CA to Chicago, and worked for Louis Meland Company as a biller, and lived paycheck to paycheck. After about one year of that, I accepted the fact that I was going nowhere, so I enlisted into the US Air Force. That was the best decision I could have made. They assigned me to the Strategic Air Command to work with nukes; to maintain and load them only bombers. Mind you, this was back in the late 1950's, and the Air Force had B36's, B47's and B52's. I never saw another Asian working in my field, and often wondered why that was. In 1945, the US bombed Hiroshima with the nukes I worked with, and that was my ancestral home. Our grandfather moved from Hiroshima to Hawaii where he had a large family. My father and two uncles moved to California to find work in the early 1900's when they were teens. The fact that the Air Force assigned me to work with nukes gave me the motivation to finish college. While assigned at Walker AFB in New Mexico, I was responsible to revise our tech manuals when new information were sent to us. All classified TOP SECRET. During one of those revision periods, I found a mistake, and notified my boss how it should have been written. The commander of the base made me "Airman for six months." A few years after my discharge, I started going to college and earned a degree in Accounting. And here we are! The fact that the Air Force gave me the opportunity to get a one year assignment in Morocco was the beginning of my love affair with world travel. During that one year, I was able to visit Marrakech, Casablanca, Tangiers, Madrid, Paris, and London. As the saying goes, the rest is history. BTW, Walker AFB was where the Enola Gay was based, and the atomic bombing of Japan was planned. I learned this many years after my discharge from the Air Force. There are a lot more stories involved during this period, but it would take a book. LOL.

Probably so, but I credit much of it to good luck, and being at the right place at the right time. Before I even graduated from college, I had four job offers, and one was from Florsheim Shoe Company. As most people know, Florsheim Shoes was one of the premier shoe company in the US. The irony being that coming from a very poor family, we wore Gallen Kamp shoes. After about a month, the soles had holes in them that we stuff ed cardboard into. Florsheim not offered me a job, but an expense account to travel the seven western states to audit their stores. After 3.5 years, they promoted me to Audit Manager, but we had to move to Chicago. We had a beautiful home built with brick and cedar in Naperville, a suburb of Chicago, where many commuted into Chicago for work. After three years of that, we missed family and friends, and the climate of California, so I resigned and moved back to the San Francisco Bay Area. It turned out fine; I worked in management for a couple of companies, and also did consulting to small businesses in Silicon Valley. Even had one client in Arizona. Did well enough to retire early and travel the world. Almost flunked out of high school, and started college on probation. Goes to prove, it's never too late.
