chicago dim sum...tomorrow, where to go??

food freak | Jul 20, 2002 02:41 PM

hey all,

i'm visiting chicago right now, and i've done my best to sample the local fare. polish hot dogs at weiners circle, pork sandwiches, polish buffet, korean bbq, charbroiled cheddar burgers, etc. i think i'm going to be returning to new york a few pounds heavier, but vanity loses out to my desire to fully experiencing all a city has to offer.

what i'm really craving now is some good dim sum. as a kid, my parents took me to yum cha every sunday in san francisco, so i'm well-versed in the ways of dim sum and after a few weeks on the road i'm craving my sunday fix. i've read some of the posts here regarding the phoenix, and i've read a few online reviews of three happiness, but i'm still not sure where to go.

what would you guys recommend? i don't want tourist trap, and although i don't mind checking off my selections from a menu, i'd much rather order from the carts. please, please, give me some recommendations. i eat everything. i'm planning on going tomorrow, and i leave town on wednesday, so i'd LOVE to be able to add chicago to the list of cities i've eaten dim sum in.

help a girl out why don't you.
