Dimsum at A-K (formerly known as 1-9) Seafood

January 8, 2009 § Leave a comment

I’m back on the Hilltop and already missing home. In my first class on Keats and Shelley, our professor (who by the way had a posh British accent) handed out Keats’ “On first reading Chapman’s Homer” and asked us to write about one rhetorical device that “contributed to the poem’s overall meaning.” EH? I’m definitely not in study mode yet, so that was quite the rude awakening.

I was organizing the pictures that I took over break, and when I got to these dimsum pictures, I was salivating. CHINESE FOOD I’M GOING TO MISS YOU. A-K was formerly known as 1-9 because it was located at the juncture of Routes 1 and 9. Yeah, the owners weren’t too creative with the original title; I’m wondering why A-K for the new one. Anyway, I laughed when I saw the new sign where they just taped over the original name.

They offer your typical dimsum dishes, and that’s what makes it so great, in my opinion. Hardly ever does my family order something new. We go to A-K because we have certain expectations and we know they’re going to deliver. For example, their honeycomb tripe with radishes is spicy and tender and every fried dish they serve is surprisingly light and wonderfully seasoned. I also suggest any of their delicate shrimp dumplings as well as the egg tarts. YUM.

For all those living near Edison (or Avenel where it’s actually located) or somehow visiting (though there’s really not much here except ethnic restaurants and malls), I’d highly recommend it.
