Brother Seafood Restaurant Review

Restaurant

My husband and I recently dined at Brother Seafood Restaurant in Cherry Hill, New Jersey, for a dim sum brunch. The restaurant came recommended by neighbors as a great, local dim sum spot. The full menu is quite extensive, though for this visit, we only wanted to sample dim sum.

 

We arrived less than an hour after the restaurant opened and it was already packed. We were lucky to snag a table for two before more diners came in for a meal. The waiter gave us each a full menu to browse, plus one paper dim sum menu to directly mark our choices. We barely glanced at the regular menu, as there were more than 60 options on the dim sum menu. Hungry, we decided to split several dishes. The menu had a variety of choices, from dumplings and springs rolls to cooked vegetables and meat. While we consider ourselves adventurous eaters, on this visit, we opted to stick with simpler dishes instead of the beef intestine, chicken feet and jellyfish on the menu.

Dishes arrived as they were prepared. Up first: pork shiu mai, shrimp dumplings and pork pastries. Of these three, I enjoyed the shrimp dumpling most. The delicate dough fell apart as I ate it, but the shrimp was flavorful and an enjoyable bite. Beef congee and beef rice roll arrived next. This was my first time trying congee, and I wasn’t disappointed. The congee was blander than the other dishes, but it was a comforting dish and a nice break from the bold, salty flavors of the other dishes. The last plates to arrive were my favorites: cold cucumber with chili oil and Shanghai pork dumplings. The cucumbers were spicy with a refreshing crunch. The dumplings reminded me of the popular soup dumplings. While messy, they were rich with flavor.

 

Overall, we really enjoyed our meal, particularly the variety of dishes available. We already have plans to return with friends soon.
