Another Dim Sum Option

I heard about Dai Tung dim sum at a dinner party last month and thought it might be worth a try on a sunny weekend.

A busy place, so aim to be there before 11:00 am. One of the few dim sum places that have not dispensed with the cart pushing servers, but be patient -  some items were circulating at ten times the frequency of the others.

Sho-Mai and Shrimp Dumplings were not the best I have had in the city. The hot sauce that came with them tasted more like Mexican Tabasco sauce than Chinese hot sauce.

But the bean curds with mushrooms were worth the wait.

The BBQ pork buns were nicely done and presented, but the Gai Lan were too oily and soaked with garlic.

The Black Beans sesame buns for desserts were surprisingly good, and somewhat addictive.

Worth the try, particularly when the bill arrived - 6 items, including taxes and tea, came to $19.49.
