Never expect the day I will recommend Dim Sum at, 'of all places' - Chili Secrets!!

Chili Secrets on Leslie just north of Hwy #7 ( Richmond Hill ) is known for serving the cheapest Dim Sum in the area. As such, I have always been skeptical about their quality and hesitant in giving it a try!
Today, due to some unforeseen reason, I had a quick Dim Sum lunch at this place and was pleasantly surprised! ( more like stunned )!!

The Har Gow I ordered had one of the best seasoned and most delicious prawn fillings anywhere in the GTA! Fresh, juicy and crunchy; whole, rather than diced shrimps were used. The intact wrapper, though not the thinnest is more than acceptable. It actually tasted better than Dragon Dynasty's version!

The braised beef tendons was a revelation and one of the tastiest rendition I had. The sauce was simply amazing!

Steamed chicken with Chinese mushrooms over rice in a porcelain pot was great value for the money. Especially when 'free-range' chicken was used!!

The Beef wrap comprising of spiced beef, veggie, Hoisin sauce wrapped inside a Chinese crepe was so good, my son ordered another one to go!

For sure, I will return and try out more of their offerings. ( hoping my experience today is not an aberration!! )
