女兒紅 婚宴會館 Your Home Wedding Hall (Taichung, Taiwan)

After visiting Tokyo, we went home to Taiwan, only to return to a Ballroom/Christmas/40th Anniversary party at the Grand Hyatt in Taipei the next day.  This was a few days before Christmas [so you can just tell how far behind I am with this blogging business that I concern myself with. ;P ].  Before we departed for Taipei from Taichung, we decided to grab lunch at , which is actually really a wedding planning center's 'side business.'

The place is grandeur, with a red and gold theme and exquisite looking furniture and decor - exactly what you would picture a Chinese wedding hall would be like.  We went there for yum cha, or dim sum (same thing, really), and ordered quite a bit of food.  I just won't bother describing everything, as their menu does have pictures...

The place for yum cha is not bad, though not exactly authentic, but they do have a few items I would recommend.  The most memorable was the sesame balls with black sesame filling [流沙芝麻球], which we got for dessert.  The daikon 'cakes' [蘿蔔糕] were also not bad at all, and neither were their Gai Lan veggies [蠔油芥蘭], which came with a house-made oyster sauce.  The Glutinous Rice with Sausage [腊味煲仔飯] was also pretty good, though may be a bit filling to eat with all the other dim sum dishes, which are often meat based.  The Pork Pearl Balls [龍鳳珍珠丸] Either way, I would recommend the place for its ambience and service, as well as a place to take visitors and if you're in want of a dim sum place - which really isn't common in Taiwan.  And, of course, for wedding planning [though I can't vouch for it from personal experience].
