Casa Imperial Fine Chinese Cuisine

On the outside, it looks like a large two storey home but when you walk in, the interior is grand.  The rooms have been kept intact with dark wood trim and chandeliers hanging from the ceilings – I almost felt like I should have been here having afternoon tea instead of dim sum.  We were seated in the downstairs dining room and to be honest, I wasn’t expecting much from Casa Imperial but to my surprise the dim sum was pretty delicious.  Below are some of the dishes we ordered, most are common in dim sum but my favourites are the siu mai, sticky rice in lotus leaf and beef steamed rice roll.  You’ll notice that they do siu mai a bit differently here, made with the typical shrimp and pork except here they’ve topped it with conpoy – dried scallops.  Definitely worth the drive up!
