Price: Fair, but our meal was on the expensive side
I've been blogging about food I had on my trip for awhile now, time to change it up and bring it back to the home town. So about a week ago, my family and I went with another family to a local Chinese restaurant. I haven't been to one for a long time. Although Bing Sheng do serve dim sum, we went for the regular menu. We had a set meal for 6 for $245, but since there were only 5 of us, they agree to only charge us as 5 ppl instead.
This was a complimentary side dish that was served first. The potato slices were blanched and then mixed with some sesame oil, salt and a bit of chili powder. I thought it was okay, but my dad loved it.
Their service was actually not bad consider how busy they were at the time. They filled our tea pot quite frequently, and they took away the empty dishes most of the time without asking. However the biggest problem with Chinese restaurants is that they all seem to forget how to smile. All I can say is, service here is typical, but slightly better as they do keep an eye out for empty dishes and tea pots.
Overall, we thought the meal was delicious and nicely excuted. The portion size was quite large, so it's definitely filling. Since I am impressed with their regular menu, that just makes me want to go back sooner to try their dim sum. I just hope it's equally as good as their regular menu.
