Vancouver Dim Sum Recs for Beginners?

Vel | Jan 21, 2012 07:39 PM

Headed up from Seattle next weekend. DH has never done Dim Sum, and I have only been a handful of times with large group of co-workers in the ID. The place we went (I want to say House of Hong, but not positive) was push-cart, but my co-workers knew what to choose and how to request items off the menu.

I understand that Vancouver DS is much more authentic, both the food and the experience, so can anyone recommend a place for a couple of newbies to try? We will have a car and so can go to Richmond, but would prefer to stay downtown.

We love good food, but I think what's more important for us getting our feet wet is that the experience is navigable for us. Pushcarts might be easier than menus, and servers that are patient and perhaps speak a little English would be ideal. (That's not a criticism against non-English-speakers, by the way, just an acknowledgement of our own limitations!)

Thank you!
