Dim Sum for New Year in Seattle area
SF hounds heading to Seattle and Redmond for long weekend. We'd love to find great dim sum. Any suggestions?
There are 2 in Redmond - Jeem's and King's. Neither are mind-blowing, but will suffice.
Jade Garden in Chinatown is pretty good.
On the way up to Seattle, Imperial Garden in Renton is nice too.
If you happen to be driving that far up to Seattle instead of flying, another 2-3 hours north will land you in Vancouver, if you must have the best dimsum. Seattle is "good enough" (at least compared to that Chinese culinary wasteland known as Portland), but it will disappoint compared to the Bay Area.
I second on the Jade Garden rec. Have been there about a dozen times and not too many misses. But we didn't like Imperial Garden the one time we tried it, and it didn't compare favorably. They did have a kitchen fire or flood, and were serving food in a different restaurant in the same mini mall, so that might have had an impact on the taste.
Other places to consider would be Noble Court in Bellevue and O'Asian in Seattle. Doesn't come close to Yank Sing in SF, though.
