Lunch at Macky’s Dim Sum, Issaquah

while on an antiquing trip to Snoqualmie and Gilman Antiques.. this place was highly rated on Yelp so we decided to give it a try. The food here is average, quite comparable to all the typical dim sum places in the ID in Seattle.

Macky's Dim Sum
One of our happy discoveries about American style dim sum; too much mayonnaise on this one, and the batter on the shrimp was too thick.

We got the steamed beancurd skin roll, which was pretty well done. We still haven’t found a good deep fried version of this here, which is one of my favourite dim sum dishes in Singapore.

Radish cake fried in XO sauce – this was pretty impressive actually; although again, too much batter on the radish cake which was unnecessary. The portion was huge, we had to take home most of it.

Their salt and pepper chicken wings were pretty good – served piping hot and very crispy.

Even though the compound is large this place fills up quickly and we had to wait 15 minutes for a table, something which I totally didn’t expect in Issaquah :P Given that there are quite a lot of eateries here this must be one of the better ones.
