When my little ones were really young, we’d rush downstairs on Saturday mornings just like I used to do when I was their age. With the advent of cable TV, the novelty of Saturday morning cartoons wore off three decades ago. But there was still something special on TV some years back.
I had read Dick Bruna’s Miffy books when I was young and bought my kids Miffy the Artist, which quickly became a favorite in our house. And when I found it on our local PBS at 7am on Saturday mornings, my kids quickly became huge fans.
When I saw a Miffy dim sum restaurant in Central last month, I wasn’t fanatic enough to drag my friends there. But I filed it away on my to-do list when I bring my kids to Hong Kong. (We’ve been talking about it long enough, it’s going to happen one of these years.)
I’ve never been to cutesy dim sum places.
But I’d be up for trying it.
After all, how many dim sum places pay tribute to Dutch children’s books?
