A friend who is uninitiated in the rituals, wonders, and pleasures of dim sum recently tried a few items on a whim. I'd report his findings, but he has no baseline for the sake of comparison.
Yes, better dim sum is to be had elsewhere, and I usually save my appetite for trips to SF. But I'd rather avoid the advice to go elsewhere, as that's not always an option.
PDX does not have a good reputation for dim sum. Good dim sum chefs don't stick around and find the greener pastures to the north and south.
However, with Ocean City, Wong's King, and a few others now having regular service, and noting that these places can get packed well before noon, it seems to me that PDX, having a decent enough Asian population, is ripe for a decent dim sum place. Or are my perceptions skewed?
I am wondering if any local Hounds have tried this newish place in the Eastport Plaza? Are there others worthy of note?
