Fav Dim Sum?

Whenever I get to try dim sum, and I tell them that I can't eat pork or shellfish, I get shuttled to the Sesame Ball. I have gotten to try them at a few places now, and I love them! What do you crave?

  1. go for chicken feet. They can be amazing.

    1. I love dim sum and have many favorites. One standout is rice noodles with XO sauce (and sometimes bean sprouts are in the mix).

      But each dim sum restaurant seems to have its own unique flavors and special dishes, so my favorite dim sum will usually depend on the restaurant we select.

      1. har gow, chicken feet, turnip cake, the sticky triangle of sweet rice (don't know what to call it in English and can't spell it in Chinese) and almost any that has garlic chives. Thanks for making me hungry.

        1. I like the vegetarian versions of the following:

          baked buns
          steamed dumplings
          rice noodle rolls (rare)
          tofu skin rolls
          congee

          These are always veg (and oh-so-tasty): scallion pancakes, tea eggs and fried bread.
