Philly 'hound disappointed at Shun Lee

Susan H | Aug 13, 2004 11:34 AM

We had tickets to The Frogs at Lincoln Center (first mistake) and decided to try the dim sum at Shun Lee, based on some poses from 2001. We started with the house wonton soup for two -- the lunch truck near my office does better cantonese wanton soup. The wontons were ordinary. The chicken chunks were dry and overcooked (although there were plenty of them). There was one tiny slice of ham, some small shrimp (they were OK), and maybe two tiny pieces of some sort of veggie (maybe snow peas). All of the dim sum options we tried were good, but overpriced ($6.25 per plate). The best were the seafood and chive dumplings. The sticky rice had lots of fillings (so much, it fell apart) but nothing extraordinary. We would have been better off taking the subway to Chinatown.
