Uncle Yip’s Seafood and Dim Sum

If you’re looking for unconventional brunch spot look no further than Uncle Yip’s. They cater to most Asian cuisines from Chinese, Vietnamese, Japanese and other dishes. You have your option of the daily dim sum specials which I usually take advantage of or you can order off the menu. Many exotic options await. Cuttlefish, conch, fresh oysters, calamari anyone?

Here you have roast pig. At first glance you might think this is pork belly but we’re not so sure that’s true.  There are some bone portions in the roast pig that would lead us to think it might be shoulder. Whatever, it’s delicious. The dipping sauce is of a hoisin-like variety.

Here’s the spread…

Pork buns in the steamer which were good but very average. In fact they appear to have been purchased commercially. Nothing special.

Pork spring rolls below. Again, the taste is what you’d expect. They were hot, crisp and flaky like you’d expect. Not an overwhelming pork flavor though.

Scallion pancakes were really, really good. Nice and warm, slightly oily but not overly greasy with the nice onion flavor.

Below is the reason I keep coming back. Uncle Yip’s has congee. I had never even had it until this year. (Thanks Asian Food Fest) But congee is now on my list of soups. Congee is a rice porridge soup with optional century egg. It’s definitely worth a try with some hot pepper oil for an extra kick.

Uncle Yip’s also has a fresh seafood menu and bar that has all the traditional Asian beers.
