You guys always come to my rescue so I am asking for your help once again even though this is very humiliating to admit: I have not been to the amazing restaurants I keep reading about (Lin's, Dynasty ect...) on these boards since I have moved here. The Asian food is great locally and I was content.
Tomorrow night that is going to change. My Mom is visiting and she is jonesing for the kind of soup dumplings and noodles she had in Beijing and Taiwan. I want to proudly show her what Vancouver has to offer.
My question is about the etiquette and ordering. Please excuse my ignorance and lack of knowledge. I have looked at the websites for the restaurants and am completely confused as to how to order what we will eat.
Can you order dim sum in the evening for dinner? Can you order dim sum and also order items a la carte as well.
Thanks in advance for any assistance!
