For this week’s edition of Dot Com Pho, we decided to take a break from Pho and try something new. Since I will be flying to Shanghai this Friday, I recommended we get a taste of China by heading to Chen’s Shanghai Kitchen. Vancouver Magazine list Chen’s as the best casual Chinese restaurant in the city and it’s easy to see why. The place is always packed and you are sometimes required to share a table with other diners. That is a small price to pay for Chen’s famous Xiao-long bao – unequivocally, the city’s best.
Getting a table at Chen’s can be an adventure in itself – they don’t take reservations. Fortunately, Sarah and the owner of Chen’s are good friends and she was able to set aside a table for us. I’m sure that upset dinners that were waiting but hey, it’s all about who you know! We had a full house of 14 show up for Dot Com Shanghai Kitchen.
This is the first Dot Com video to be edited with iMovie 09. There are some really cool new feature and I’m still trying to learn them all. Expect to see much better quality movies in the future.
For the first edition of Dot Com Shanghai Kitchen, we have the continuing iPhone vs. Blackberry fight, Stephen reading from a script, the dirty dozens, Ed being late (as usual), eating pig ears, the famous Xiao-long bao and Sally not liking anyone. Enjoy!
