Nice Meeting You
1177 Central Parkway West
Mississauga, Ontario L5C 4P3
We went to Cameron for dim sum over the weekend. Despite the fact that we showed up around two o'clock, we still waited for good 30 min before being seated. Feeling slightly frustrated by the limited dim sum choices in town, I decide to share a (recent) pleasant experience. The restaurant is in Mississauga though.
In "Nice Meeting You" (yup, that is the name of the restaurant), the staff pushes carts among tables. It is great in a way that when you see something you like, you just grab and consume it in no time. The down side is you have no control over what options you are offered. But hey...that is part of the fun. You pay lots of attentions to your "surroundings" while carrying on conversation with friends. Your head turns like a weather vane and your eyes are sharp like eagles'. Once you spot a cart which carries items you want, you anxiously wait and hope that there will still be some left by the time the cart arrives.
The process, as mentioned above, might sometimes be disappointing (that is, the waitress turns around before reaching your table because the cart is empty), we still sampled pretty much everything we really wanted. There are standard items such as siu mai (steamed meat dumplings) and other types of dumplings and buns. There are also items not available in the few dim sum places in K-W areas, bite-size custard tart as one example (Two choices: regular or creamy). On top of all those, they also serve congee, fried rice and noodles (in small plates) but we were too full to try any of them. Overall, it was a pleasant meal. And it cost only about 2/3 of having similar items in town. I definitely don't mind revisiting this restaurant.
