3 pcs. Gaozi with chicken and mushrooms fillings.
Gaozi is the dimsum that all dimsum house have and have their own recipe. Actually all Chinese families have their own favorite recipes. When we were a kids often times our neighbors make gaozi and often gave surplus to our family. By the smell and the taste we often can guess correctly which neighbor have made it. You see, gaozi is identity!
At Hidden Dimsum you should have a gaozi that identifies us. What can be more special if we can leave our signature like "from Hidden Dimsum with love! " right inside our takeaway box?
With "love from us" means long time hand copped chicken with Karl Johan mushrooms, maize and bamboo shoots. All wrapped inside a thin layer of paste made from wheat flour dough. Then we developed and perfected a technique called pan steaming. Why? Because we wanted you to have a gaozi with taste locked inside, which is achieved by the steaming process while having a crispy paste, which is achieved from the pan frying process. Have you noticed that these two things contradict?
We solved it by a process that we developed by first putting the gaozi on a warm pan with little oil. Then we increased the heat while pouring water inside the hot pan to generate the steam. We will then putting a lid on top to turn the pan into a steamer. Then once all the water is evaporated we locked the taste inside the gaozi, and finally they are gently pan fried on the same pan at the end.
This is the reason why gaozi is among top 5 most ordered dish from Hidden Dimsum and HIDDEN Dimsum by Night. This is why we feel touched of what we do, and we wish to touch your heart with our dimsum!
We are dimsum!
