Morning Tea in Santa Barbara

After a long time without porridge, I had the happiest time having morning tea.

5 December 2019

The last time I had Cantonese morning tea was a few years ago in Shenzhen. Food in southern China is characterized by its delicacy; there are about four or five bite-sized pieces of food per serving. Even though the morning tea served in Santa Barbara is not as good as the morning tea served at home, it is enough to bring happiness and satisfaction.

Gailan in Oyster Sauce
Honey Roasted BBQ Pork
Mango Pudding
The Shrimp Rice Wrap here is incomparable to what I have eaten in Chaoshan, but I still wanted to give it a try. Unfortunately, this was probably the only dish that didn’t meet my expectations.
Pork Pot Stickers
Shrimp Dumplings
Szechuan Wontons are a must for food here. The bright red chili oil is not really spicy, but it is still very delicious.
Steamed BBQ Pork Bun
Stuffed Eggplant
It is the most comfortable thing to kill time on the weekend: enjoying morning tea and chatting with friends.
Lean Pork Porridge was certainly the most enjoyable, as it has been a long time since I tasted such a light but very thick porridge.
