...the only type of marathon I will ever run.

Dim Sum Sundae Sunday

It wasn't really a marathon, although it could constitute a Food 5k. It really was just lunch and dessert. Fantastic lunch and fantastic dessert.
In a moment of spontaneity we found ourselves Alhambra-bound Sunday morning. Seated outside Triumphal Palace at 11:30am, we eagerly awaited what we've read about countless times- one of the best dim sum restaurants in the LA area.
Two-tops aren't plentiful at this lazy-susan-rich spot. We waited for forty five minutes amongst large groups of predominantly Chinese families and friends. Upon being seated we wasted no time checking off seafood and pork-filled dumplings. The cartless service at Triumphal palace is refreshing.
Not picture were the two best pork dishes: Steamed BBQ Pork Buns and Pork Shiu-Mai. It should be noted that every order was lighter and fresher tasting then dim sum I've had in the past.
The simple elegance of the Crystal Shrimp Har-Gow set them above many past dumplings that I've eaten.Scallop Dumplings
Congee with Sliced Fish
Sesame Seafood Roll
BBQ Pork Belly
Fried Crab Claw with Stuffed Fish
Fosselman's Mint Chip and Mocha Almond Fudge Sundae with hot fudge, whipped cream and nuts
We were pretty full after that. Altogether a wonderful summer Sunday.
