A New Dim Sum Option On The West Side
Takumi is now offering a diverse menu of dim sum every day at lunchtime (11am-2pm).
The menu has about 20 options, though not all are available at any given time. Every dish is $4.75 per serving.
Some Of The Dim Sum Dishes at Takumi
The Shrimp & Spinach Dumplings had that perfect, light dim sum pastry wrapper, and a fresh-tasting combo of seafood and spinach inside. Next time I go back, this is the one thing I’ll get again for sure.
Doing one manapua seemed like a must, so we went with the Manapua Steamed Chicken Bun. These were mini-manapua, served three to an order. The bun had that nice sweet & stickyness and the filling was tasty. Basic, filling, delicious manapua — you can’t really go wrong with meats wrapped in dough whether you’re eating a tamale, an empanada, a piroshky, or a calzone.
The Seaweed Rolls came as a bit of a surprise. I wasn’t sure what the seaweed would be rolled around. Calamari strips, it turns out. Tasty, but I would probably try something else next time.
Mochi Rice Balls were balls of sweet, sticky rice, encased in an egg batter wrap.
They were a nice final savory dish before our dessert of Malaysian Sponge Cake. This was a uniquely light, pleasant dessert to finish off the meal. Not overly sweet, but nice and fluffy (as you can see below).
