I thought NYC was exclusive.
However, I was awakened to the rarity of certain dim sum options in the Bay Area thanks to two cousins who went to a restaurant and then returned the next day because this dish wasn’t available the first time.
You’re looking at (what’s left of) 1 of 6 crispy pork belly portions that are served each day at Hong Kong Flower Lounge in Millbrae, Calif.
ONE of SIX.
We made sure to come before noon AND tell the primary server we were here to get this particular plate. It was hand-delivered (versus cart-delivered) as a result.
Was it worth two days of dim sum in a row? Go try it.*
*Okay, fine, it was melt-in-your-mouth delicious. Go.
