Friday Food Foto – Lamb Shui Mai from M.Y. China

I took a few of my co-workers to M.Y. China at the Westfield San Francisco Centre to try out the secret menu item that Chef Tony and I collaborated on, lamb shui mai (see the full story of how we did it). I think we ordered half the menu and enjoyed absolutely every dish!

Midway through the meal we had a surprise visit from Chef Martin Yan (the M Y in M.Y. China). He wanted to say “hi” and to make sure we ate our gingko nuts (in our Kobe beef medallions) as they would bring us long life!

What a thrill! Chef Martin was a celebrity chef (along with Julia Childs and Jacques Pepin) before there was even a thing called a celebrity chef!

If you are in the San Francisco area, check out M.Y. China under the gorgeous dome in the Westfield San Francisco Centre. They have great dim sum (you know how I feel about dim sum), amazing noodle dishes (some you will have difficulty finding anywhere else) and delicious wok dishes! I know my Chinese and I can tell you, I haven’t had a single dish I didn’t love and the seven people sitting around the table at lunch this week heartily agree!

If you are on the run with no time to dine in, no problem! Use the Westfield Labs  Dine on Time app to order – and that is the ONLY way to get my secret menu item – or any of the other Westfield Tastemaker items, pick it up and off you go!
