Another Dim Sum Suggestion Request

Harrison486 | Jun 30, 2007 03:31 PM

Hey everyone! I know that there have been plenty of Dim Sum topics, and I have searched and read through many of them. However, even after having read through them, I am still uncertain of where to go.

Here's my story: My girlfriend is coming up to visit (shes from Maryland and I live in Northern NJ). We both go to the University of Maryland and have had Dim Sum once or twice at a local restaurant in a more Asian-dense area of Maryland. As she has mentioned wanting to see Chinatown a few times, I figured why not start off with some Dim Sum... Anyway, I am somewhat confused as to where to go. From all the previous threads I have read, I have basically narrowed the choices down to Dim Sum Go Go, Golden Bridge, Jing Fong, or Ping's. Am I missing some important choices? Anyway, I was wondering where you guys would suggest out of that list. Neither of us are speakers of any asian language and I am not completely certain that we remember the names of the foods we had liked or anything. Maybe you guys could suggest somewhere that would be relatively novice-friendly but not completely americanized? I know that one of the big issues is carts vs no-carts and as I have not yet asked my g/f her preference, maybe you guys could suggest one cart option and one no-cart option?

Note: I am not sure if this really matters, but we will probably be attempting to eat around 11:30ish am and it will probably only be the two of us...

Thanks so much.
