    I am a chao-chow city devotee but many on this board prefer Hei La Moon. There are several other options as well.

      Unless you are prepared to wait for at least half an hour, CCC and Emperor Garden will be your choices for Sunday afternoon dim sum.

        What about New Shanghai? Has anyone had dim sum there since the Shanghai Gate folks took it over?

          Been there several times for their dim sum -- it's mostly Shanghainese and Northern Chinese street snacks. Last time was there (a few weeks ago), enjoyed the soy milk with fried crullers and pan fried buns filled with shredded turnip. Had the beef in flatbread a couple f months agoa nd liked that too.

            Yay. I'm goin'--recently ordered in from Dining In (I know, I know) and everything I got was really terrific even delivered--the dumplings, the meatballs, the scallion pie.

          My friends and I have been doing Sunday dim sum at China Pearl in Chinatown for about five years and have never been disappointed.

            If you don't want to drive into Chinatown and deal with parking, go to the China Pearl in Woburn near the Woburn Mall. It's the same owners of China Pearl in chinatown and the dim sum is exactly the same. It's more convenient for me and the family.

            Yes. Try this thread, where the major pluses and minuses of the major contenders have been recently reviewed (and disagreed about): http://www.chowhound.com/topics/332266
