Ok, so my husband and I just had our first dim sum in Portland last weekend and loved it! Don't ask me why we have never done it before, but we just haven't. I cook alot of Asian and Thai so I guess we just don't go out for it. Anyway, I am craving it again already and have been searching the board for Seattle restaurants and have narrowed it down a bit. My question is, should dim sum only be done for lunch or brunch? It sounds as if dinner might not be a good plan as the dim sum isn't as fresh and the choices aren't as good. I read a lot of reviews that said go early for best selection. We are going out to dinner tomorrow night with friends who have never had it (compared to our one time) so I don't want it to be a bad experience. We are going to the International District. Should we just order off a menu or is it worth trying dim sum for dinner?
