My fabulous friend thought myself and my boys, ages 4 and 7, needed a little culture in our lives so she and her family treated us to a dinner at Ming Court.
Everything was wonderful. She ordered for us and I believe we had one of just about everything at our table. My 7 year old's eyes lit up when the waiter set out the dumplings. He grabbed one and said, "Is this what Po ate on Kung Fu Panda?" We let him know that indeed it was so he loved it and had to take one home of course!
Their next favorite food was the Grilled BBQ pork and the chocolate cake.
Once their bellies were full they became mesmerized by the live Chinese music that was being played by two very friendly people.
We had an amazing time with friends and my boys really were able to experience the Chinese culture.
We plan our visits to Ming Court only the weekends when they serve Dim Sum. Years ago, servers pushed carts from table to table. Now, Dim Sum is ordered via a simple checklist that's given to the server.
Surprisingly, once all your Dim Sum choices are selected, the food comes out relatively fast. Because we only order Dim Sum, the portions are shared and the variety is plentiful.
Our favorites are the BBQ pork buns, steamed shrimp rolls, eggplant shrimp, shallot pepper tofu, golden calamari, and sesame seed balls.
Our girls enjoy the meal, but an extra treat for them are the koi ponds at the entrance of the restaurant. You'll want to pack a couple of quarters to feed the koi fish.
