Shouting it from the roof tops- there is now DIM SUM in BALTIMORE COUNTY!!!

There's a place in a Rosedale industrial park on Rt 40 called HAHA Foods. I've driven past it the last few years and always assumed it was a strictly wholesale Asian market. I've never been so happy to be wrong in my entire life. It's a warehouse-sized Asian grocery store and for the last 6 months it's had a Chinese/Dim Sum restaurant/eatery INSIDE of it. Complete with hanging roast pigs and ducks in a window. As usual, on the rare occasions that I do eat dim sum (usually when I'm out of town,) my eyes were way bigger than my stomach. Everything we got was good, shu mai, taro dumplings, bbq buns, sticky rice in lotus leaf, etc. Their non- dim sum menu was also quite expansive, from congee to jellyfish. And the market- oh the market. Fresh seafood (a lot of it still swimming) ,meat, produce, more dried and canned goods than you could shake a stick at, and a freezer section filled with tons of goodies-including a shit ton of frozen dim sum items. Check this place out. I'm serious. I know this is nothing special for people in a lot of cities, but here it's a big deal. At least it is for anyone like me, who lies awake some nights just wishing for a decent Chinese meal in this town full of shiny orange chicken and f*cking P.F. Changs.
