The best thing about dim sum is that you needn't have dessert last. Nibbled at in the middle of a meal, between bites of marinated tripe, steamed sticky rice with lup cheong, or taro, there is no "right or wrong" as to when you indulge in dessert. Which is perfect because I love dessert at the beginning, in the middle, and at the end of a meal.
Dim sum desserts are found in all forms at Perfect Team Corporation. They are fried and steam— some take the shape of bright jellies, some are made from rice noodles. My favorite are the baked nai won baos. Served as a trio of warm, pillowy buns with crisp, egg topping (akin to pineapple buns), the topping all but crumbles away into sweet goodness on first bite. Inside, you'll find an eggy, sweet custard that, when served straight from the oven, oozes onto your tongue like molten lava. Try not to burn yourself. But the odds that you'll recall this warning while under the spell of hot baos are mighty slim!
