    1. Not sure i they carry dim sum, but there is a good Chinese bakery in Lauderdale Lakes. Maxim in the 4200 block of N. State Road 7.

      Their # is 954 335-1388. If they don't carry dim sum, they may be able to point you in the right direction.

      Good luck!

        In the same plaza as that Chinese bakery (and Silver Pond and Saigon City and the A Dong Sino-Viet grocery store) there's a tiny little storefront called "Asian Prepared Foods" or something like that. It is a wholesale dim sum factory and they're open to the public sporadically during the week. During the day you can probably just knock if the door's not open. They'll sell you items by the piece or in larger quantities.

        Also, while you're there, check out Gou Lou Cheung, a good Chinese-barbecue takeout.

          (Oh, and the Chinese bakery itself has an assortment of sweet and savory rolls, sweet items associated with dim sum like egg custard tarts, and might have some steam buns, but I'm not sure. The dim sum factory is much stronger on the savory items.)

        2. ha! either turn north to NYC or head west to California. Tropical Chinese Restaurant in Miami is okay - or Ms. Yip's as well, but both made large clumsy dim sum that will just make you sort of...bloated.

          1. Try Mr. Chu's in Miami Beach for dim sum. Blows away anything else in S. Fla.

            1. Mr. Chu's rocks. Just was there again this weekend and I'm converted from Tropical (although my kids still think Tropical's Baked BBQ Pork Bun is better).

              Tropical, meanwhile, is still leagues ahead of Ms. Yips which is really mediocre.

                South Garden may be better than both of these, and it is has been consistently populated by Chinese people for years.
