Cantonese Finger Foods- Delivered

newmexicotransplant Nov 27, 2007 11:54 AM

A U of T club I work with is holding a reception on Thursday that is supposed to have dumplings and other Hong Kong appetizers. Can anyone recommend an affordable place in Chinatown that will deliver to the campus, and that has good dumplings?

I would be so grateful for any help that I'll invite any Samaritans to the reception (and the film that follows)!

    Rol San does dim sum as well as can be expected from downtown Chinatown. I haven't tried it myself, but friends say it's at least fresh and tasty, and definitely affordable.

    Hope this helps!

      I'm not sure about delivery, but Kim Moon has some delicious and inexpensive dim sum. Being a bakery, they may have a delivery service in place. Give them a call and see.

      Good luck with the event!

        xtal, i've been meaning to post that your suggestion of kim moon is great!

        ended up there for dimsum last week and while there's no carts, the distinct separation of the kitchen/bakery from the rest of the space made it smell free and quite clean. the food was fantastic as well. gigantic but tasty and tender chicken feet, shrimp dumplings with a thin (althoug thin enough to keep tearing) skin and tasty shrimp, etc etc. the women operating the place were great but i would've liked a denser steamed sponge cake. will definitely be going again, stuffed with leftovers for about $32/3ppl.

            Thanks pinstripe and xtal for the info on Kim Moon. I used to go there as a child for their cocktail buns and rice noodle rolls - cheung fun - and I'm glad to hear that it's still going strong. I have to drop by sometime soon.

              I'm glad that you enjoyed it. I think their dim sum offerings are a fairly recent addition (after their renovation). Their har gow and steamed rice noodles are my personal favourites. I've enjoyed every time I've been there, whether it's been with a group as small as two or as large as twenty.
