Montreal Dim Sum: Kam Fong and Ruby Rouge

Bret | Jul 17, 2003 02:33 PM


We just went to find Kam Fong, a highly rated Dim Sum restaurant in Montreal's Chinatown (we are in town on vacation). Well, we tried to find it at an address on Clark Stree, but were told that it move to Urbain. Tried to find it there, but no luck. We were then sent back to Clark to go upstairs in what looked like a mini-mall (at 1008 Clark Street). Sure enough, there is a restaurant there that **used** to be Kam Fong but that is now Ruby Rouge (phone: 514-390-8828). It is also a Dim Sum parlor.

In any event, the Dim Sum for lunch at Ruby Rouge was outstanding (and we have been to many Dim Sum parlors on both the east and west coasts). I highly recommend it...although I did think it was a bit more expensive then I have been used to (on the other hand, coming from the US the exchange rate more than made up for the price). Plates ranged from $2.50 (for pork buns) to $5.00 (for a platter of Gai Lon). Most of the plates (shu mei, ha gow, etc.) came in between $3.00 and $3.75 (all prices are in Canadian dollars).

Anyone know where Kam Fong is now, and how it compares to Ruby Rouge?
