Here's a throwback from a local dim-sum restaurant. So far I've been recommended to check out one restaurant in Alemeda, San Francisco, and Toronto (thanks Terry). Any additional recommendations are welcomed.
I found a good dim sum place on my first visit to Toronto, Ontario, Canada in October 2004. Now I live there and just last weekend I returned to this restaurant with my parents, visiting from out of town, and they were also duly impressed. Further, I learned they have special dishes only prepared for the weekend crowds, such as seafood cumpling and shrimp cake.
Teri, that sounds great! The dim-sum places I've gone to were only open durning the late afternoons. I'm still on the look out for a great dim-sum place. If I ever head up to Toronto, I will have to ask you for the restaruant name. Thanks.
Well, I can't make a recommendation, but I can give you a commendation - I like your teapot sketch! It's nice and loose and just right!
Beautiful illustrations! Congratulations! Hugs!

Great blog. Thanks for visiting mine. How about we blogroll each other?:-)
Thank you everyone for the comments and recommendations. giles - yes, this was done when I was still experimenting with watercolors. I think I put over 3 layers of different colors because I was not satisfied. I pretty much worked on it continuously throughout dinner, lucky my friends didn't mind :)
Very cool--like an illustrated journal entry od sorts--nice personal touch here. Good to see you posting more--love the sketch-crawl pieces.
G -- the name of the dim sum place in Toronto is Rainbow Seafood. It is run by Vietnamese I discovered! It is just a few paces West of Spadina Ave. (you can take a streetcar) on Dundas St. Cheers, TP.S. I think you should do more tea pots. I like to drink tea, very healthy habit. And I am the only person I know who has a pattern for making tea cozies.
Thanks Steve. I hope to display my next Sketchcrawl in a more creative format.Thanks Teri for the exact name of the place in Toronto, I wish I could drive there after work!I actually plan to submit one more "tea" entry by the end of this week. Oh, the tea cozies are brilliant, I really never knew about them until you mentioned them. Now, to look for a design to my liking....hmmmm. Oh, the ice-cream sleeves are brilliant too. I will be ordering a couple thanks to the link you provided :)
Love that watercolor, really well done (I'm a sucker for watercolors cause I can't do it!). Hey, ever try CBS Seafood in Chinatown? The Dim Sum is cheap and pretty good.
Thanks for the dim-sum recommendation - sounds like a good one to check out...if this rain can take a break?!
