For our last meal in Hawaii, we decided to have dim sum before heading off to the airport. Mei Sum is located in Oahu's Chinatown.

It's interesting to go for dim sum with new people. It's nice to stray from my family's reliable standby's. The standby's of har gao, siu mai and taro cakes were all solid though.

Cee did read on one of the reviews that Mei Sum was known for its fried eggplant with crispy garlic dish. The eggplant slices were nice and crispy. The garlic bits were maybe a bit much.

We also ordered sticky rice in lotus leaves, which my family never orders. We couldn't end a dim sum meal without egg custard tarts. Yum!

Mei Sum provides pretty good dim sum. The restaurant was not too full when we arrived so we were seated immediately. We did feel rushed at the end to leave, even though the restaurant wasn't full.

Finally, this concludes our awesome food journey in Hawaii! Back to Montréal posts and even some recipes to come!
