Dim Sum in Portland, OR

Anybody have any suggestions for some good dim sum
restaurants in Portland? What's good where? Is it
pretty authentic (i.e. chicken feet!) or
"Americanized"? Do they serve it with pu-erh tea?

    Alice,

    I think Fong Chong is the best (NW
    4th & Everett). There's a diverse
    crowd weekdays, but on weekends
    it's full of Chinese families. You
    can find chicken feet as well as
    shark fin dumplings (yee chee
    gow) and my favorite, the lotus-
    leaf-wrapped sticky rice called
    normy gai. The House of Louis
    across the street serves a nearly
    identical dim sum (both places
    owned, as many properties in
    Chinatown are, by the Louis clan),
    but in a more refined (and, in my
    opinion, boring) atmosphere. The
    Oregonian's Karen Brooks likes
    Seven Stars (in the same block),
    but my vote is still with Fong
    Chong.

    Chong on my web site,
    realgoodfood.com, as well as
    reviews of other Portland
    restaurants

      I strongly second Jim's backing of Fong Chong for the best dim sum in Portland.

      I believe the second best place for dim sum in Portland is Legin on 82nd Ave@Division. It is busy on the weekend as well.
