Last Friday night, in dire need of a foot massage, Ken and I decided to venture to Chinatown for a couple of hours. It was a huge success and I cannot wait to go back. Not only did we get great (and cheap!) foot massages, but we also brought home super tasty dumplings.
After a lot of research on the world wide web, I decided that we would get our foot massages at Renew Spa. It had great recommendations online (and also had a website in English). I made appointments for us and although I thought it would be empty, it was actually very busy. But it was very safe and clean — and I had my own private room, which I loved.
Very relaxing! And $35 for the hour!!!!!!
Club or foot massage?
During my foot massage, I searched online for the best dumplings closeby — and it was literally across the street — dim sum go go. 35 dollars for a whole slew of dumplings!
Highly highly recommend both! Happy hump day!
Since it is the year of dumplings here at the Josie Girl Blog, here is another recipe for another scrumptious dumpling from Kenny Lao’s dumpling book. Enjoy!
Remember Kenny Lao and his terrific book on Dumplings?
HEY THERE! Dumpling book.
I love my friends, and I love my friends’ friends! So it is no surprise that I now have a crush on chef / author / food expert / culinary entrepreneur, Kenny Lao, who I met through a mutual good friend, Lynn. I had the opportunity to interview Kenny, and hear more about his book Hey There, Dumpling! Take a look.
Confession: I was scared to buy this book as making dumplings seem a little “advanced” and “sophisticated,” But as soon as I opened the cookbook, I couldn’t put it down. Every page of the book was fascinating and interesting. RUN AND BUY IT. AND COOK THESE DUMPLINGS.
