I had made tentative reservation for Dim Sum at the Golden Ocean and am opening this up to chowtimes readers to join Suanne and I for a “Dim Sum 101” session. I am hoping to make this along the lines of what I did when I brought some of my Mexican friends for an intro to dim sum (see this post).
This session will be the precursor to the Extreme Dim Sum (XDS) some of you are asking for us to organize.
So far we already have 12 names. It would be great if you some of you could take the time to join us too. Depending on the number of people attending, we are going to have at least one person to lead each table so that you will be hosted properly.
We made a visit to Golden Ocean last weekend. The place is spacious. Although we did not eat there, we saw quite a lot of unique dim sum dishes. The most important thing is that this restaurant serves dim sums in push carts so you can choose what you want — and making it a truly “picking to the desire of your heart” experience.
Here is the details …
Location: Golden Ocean Restaurant
Address: 2046 West 41st Avenue, Vancouver

Date: May 1st, 2010 (Saturday)
Time: 10:00 AM
The cost will be evenly split between the number of people on each table depending on what is ordered. I would say it would be anywhere between $10-$20 per person.

If you are interested in joining us in the fun of learning about dim sum and before you graduate to Extreme Dim Sum, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please let us know by this Thursday as we would like to finalize the count for the restaurant. Please let us know if you have any questions too.
Ben and Suanne
