New Dim Sum Place

discus | Jan 15, 2012 10:01 AM

Well, it's new to me anyway. I saw their ad in a Chinese journal and tried out the dim sum this weekend. They're in one of the strip malls in the Ridgedale complex.

The dim sum was mostly good. The chef does a very good job with the dumpling wrapper. It's nice and thin, so you can see the food through it. All the usual shrimp dumpling, pork dumpling, etc. were very tasty. The chicken feet was scrumptious, although the tripe was a little dried out. They also have freshly made soy milk, vs a lot of the packaged soy milk I've tasted recently.

I'm a fan of Mandarin Kitchen dim sum and this as comparable. Frankly, it's a lot better than many of the other dim sum places out there. The Wanderer's food is less spicy, so you taste more of the meat flavor. For those who don't like the crowds at MK, at 10 am on Saturday we were one of three tables. The husband and wife team came from LA and opened this place up in September.
