New Port Restaurant--Cupertino, CA

There are two things to remember about New Port, where my dad took us for dim sum last weekend: 1) Get there before 11:30 and 2) Stay hydrated because New Port's food is nothing if not high in sodium.

To their credit, New Port keeps the food coming. You won't have to wait long before a caravan of four or five carts will swing by your table. The har gao will come by fairly frequently, the sui mai won't. But, when it did for us, it was impeccable.

Perhaps the most distinctive dish of the day was a spinach and fish dumpling (below). The fish was cooked to perfect doneness. I regretted we got only one serving.

The Hong Kong style egg puff (below) was soft and as light as air, but it was served cold. So, it can't really compare to the offering from Cooking Papa.

Again, remember to get there before 11:30! By noon, the line will run outside.
