Scrumptious Selections From Dimsum Break The Annex, SM North Edsa ♪♪♪

On its opening day at The Annex, SM North Edsa several weeks ago, Dimsum Break was bursting at the seams! Although I was in the mood to engage in some dimsum war with the other diners, I simply couldn't because I failed to bring my camera... Oh yeah. I don't and can't eat out without it, ever!

The new Dimsum Break at Annex, SM North Edsa

We've visited Dimsum Break on two separate occasions ever since the initial madness, and I must say that on both instances, I had a blast just being on that fastfood lane. Who knew that ordering food can be so much fun!

First pit stop was the steamed dimsum corner where I needed to make hard and fast decisions Smiling Smiley Face on which dimsum to get from an array of 11 highly-favorable selections.

With Tutapel tagging along and talking non-stop about his new white Tomica, it was extra hard to decide on which ones to pick. If not for the very, very nice female staff, I wouldn't have made it through.Smiling Smiley Face

After thanking her for being so considerate, a rush of excitement overtook me as we moved on to the 2nd pit stop: Fried Dimsum. As you can see right here, there were around 12 appetizing variants to choose from and once again, I was at a loss for words, in the most literal sense, because I didn't know how to answer the super nice staff.

Thank goodness, I survived the pop quiz Smiling Smiley Face and was able to move on to the Rice Section. I hurriedly chose Yang Chow Fried Rice, 2 glasses of Iced Tea sans any dessert.
