In this week's Café, we take a look at Chef Philip Ho, a new Chinese dim sum establishment. Ho debuted in Sunny Isles Beach a little more than a month ago, yet the restaurant is already burning on the tongues of local food trenders like too much Chinese mustard. Here is a snippet of the review:

Two of the most stunning tastes of the day came via dessert-like offerings. Upon biting into an egg custard tart with buttery crust hot from the oven, you might think it can't get any better. It can. Try the same tart with the added allure of black truffles. And then finish up with a steamed egg custard lava bun, the ball of light white dough oozing with thick, sweet, orgasmic egg yolk filling.
