Dim Sum in Chinatown

crimson | Mar 30, 200401:08 PM

Anyone have any favorites? Looking for cart dim sum rather than take out or checklist dim sum.

I've tried Peony Restaurant in the parking garage complex on the second floor. They have a greater variety of dim sum besides the usual har gow and sui mai. I had a great shrimp ball made out of sticky rice, and chicken and mushroom dumplings were great. Service was so so, and you had to ask for the soy sauce which they poured then took away. Prices were a little about $15-20 a person.

Joy Luck and Yo Ho, both next to each other on 8th?, are similar, where Joy Luck is slightly cheaper than Yo Ho, but Yo Ho is worth the extra few dollars in taste. These places are cheap dim sum places that are fine the price you pay which is about $7-10 a person.
