Dim Sum at Imperial Court

After wandering around the MGM for a bit, it was time for lunch. Fanny made a reservation at Imperial Court located inside the hotel.

The restaurant features Cantonese fare and serves authentic dishes with a modern twist. I was immediately drawn to the middle of the resaturant where a column with a carving of a dragon shined.

We were seated at a large table draped with a white tablecloth and decorated with colorful plates and chopstick rests.

It was time to enjoy some dim sum. We tried a few small plates, like the steamed rice rolls with scallops.

I also tried something different – steamed chicken, fish maw, ham, and mushrooms wrapped in bean curd skin. It definitely had some interesting textures going on.
