Maybe I don't get around to enough dim sum parlors, but this dish was new to me when I had it at East Ocean Palace in Forest Hills a while ago. It's on the dim sum section of the menu listed as fried rice balls stuffed with crab meat ($12.95). My mother-in-law was excited to see these on the menu, and they've since made it onto my hit parade of must-order dim sum items.

I've eaten at a number of Chinese places in Elmhurst and Forest Hills with my in-laws by this point, and East Ocean Palace is one of my favorites.
