Mom's First Time Dim Sum 🍽 Mother-Daughter-Time #DashOutSunday

avatar
(Edited)

Even though having dim sum in Suriname has been possible for I don't know how long, my parents have never been to a dim sum place, mostly because of not being introduced to it. That's why we wanted to take them for a while, but due to a few valid reasons had to postpone. Finally my mom - my dad lost interest - and I set a date and stuck to it this time.

Because of my father declining, my mother and I were able to bond again just the two of us and it's been a refreshing experience, because it's been a while since we last had a mother-daughter-activity. Mama left me in charge of ordering and I taught her how to hold and use the chopsticks. Also explained the tradition of the youngest pouring tea and "serving" the "elders" at the table.

It was a complete new experience to her and I described the difference between Mee Foon and Ho Fun and that most of the dishes that we ordered were steamed. Though she's not used to much steamed food, she definitely liked the greens we requested and wants to make it herself someday.

The fried pork dumplings were especially a hit and looking back it was a good choice ordering those, to ease her into some new unfamiliar snacks.

There was a communication error though, between the waitress and I, which resulted in two different types of Shumais, instead of only the shrimp filled one. We didn't make a fuss though, because we were there to relax and I knew that I was able to devour them.

And though the food was a little bit too much for just two - I was actually advised to only order the snacks - we were able to eat a substantial part of what we ordered and left exactly enough for the others at home to have a taste.

At the end of this bonding moment, my mom's verdict was that it's not something she would participate in often, but that it's a welcome change in environment, cuisine and flavors. Definitely something she could do with friends once in a while. What did you do have this Sunday? Let me know in the comments below πŸ€“.

The youngest serving the tea and food seems to be a Asian thing across the board. Game you had some mother daughter time. I don’t blame your mom for not wanting to do it often πŸ˜‚ sometimes or eyes are bigger than our stomach.

That's what my parents enjoyed and want to learn to prepare themselves at home.

That was a great idea to "take out" your mom and bond with her! Sometimes, we don't appreciate our parents as we should and these small gestures mean a lot for both sides, children, and parents...
The food looks amazing, but I suppose that mom's cuisine tastes better (that was probably her "secret message" πŸ˜€)

Her cooking is unparalleled of course !LOL

That's true. Try to call them as much as possible nowadays and we never know how long we have so we need to create these moments as much as possible.

Muchas gracias! I was busy with some major changes, which is why I'm behind with comments.

Sitting down to a table of dim sum, or any small snack dishes, makes it so easy to chat - do you like this, do you remember that - insted of everybody having their own plate of food and only concentrating on eating that. <3

I never thought about it the way you've described it and that seems to be part of the appeal I guess.
