Dominical Dim Sums ::: Dim sum dominical

March 23, 2014

L’expérience est une lanterne que l’on porte sur le dos et qui n’éclaire jamais que le chemin parcouru
– Confucius

While dim sum (literally meaning: touch the heart) was originally not a main meal, only a snack, and therefore only meant to touch the heart, it is now a staple of Cantonese dining culture, especially in Hong Kong. — Wikipedia

The Montreal Urban Sketchers met today at Restaurant Kam Fung in the Chinese District. The room was packed and we were 20+ urban sketchers that regrouped to draw…. and eat. When the waiter came to serve us the fish plate and started digging into it in order to divide it amongst us, we stopped him as we were seeing a work of art as opposed to something to eat… so we painted this beauty, and of course ate it afterwards.

Les Urban Sketchers de Montréal se sont regroupés aujourd’hui au joyeux Restaurant Kam Fung dans le quartier chinois. Leur spécialité sont les Dim Sums et ils sont exquis. Nous étions 20+ qui se sont regroupés ensemble pour peindre… et ensuite manger. Quand le serveur est arrivé avec l’assiette de poisson et s’est mis à le couper en quartiers pour qu’on se le partage, nous lui avons demandé d’arrêter car nous voulions peindre cette oeuvre d’art! Pour ensuite pouvoir la manger -)
