Deep fried eggplant slices filled with a shrimp mixture.
Ton Kiang, San Francisco
Yet another disappointing dish from Ton Kiang. These stuffed eggplants are one of my favorite dim sum dishes, and they managed to completely ruin it for me!

The greasy was literally dripping off this thing once you picked it up with chopsticks, EW! It had absolutely NO flavor except from the excessive oil that end up coating your entire mouth. Good thing this was the last plate we had, otherwise we wouldn’t have been able to taste the others from the oily film coating our taste buds. Sadness…
