Dim Sum north seattle?

Is there Dim Sum in the North Seattle area (north of the ship canal, Northgate, Greenwood, up to Shoreline but short of Lynnwood). I'm hoping there is around the Northgate area near the H&T Market or some of the chinese restaurants along Aurora on the way up. Ideally they would have dim sum for lunch like some of the places in the ID, but that's probably asking a lot so weekend would be great. Not having to drive and park in the ID would make me accept lower quality dim sum. I used to go to Doong Kong Lau Hakka.

  1. Chiang's Gourmet on Lake City Way serves dim sum, but it's Taiwanese style and you order off a menu--they don't serve from carts. Is this the kind of thing you had in mind?

      Thanks for the suggestion and yes, I'm specifically looking for places not in the ID or the eastside. I'm in north seattle and would rather drive north up Aurora than into the ID or across the bridge. Sounds like there isn't or no one knows if the new Chinese Deli? where the Steel Pig BBQ used to be, Fushen (90th & Aurora) or other restaurants near Oak Tree do Cantonese or other dim sum. If I find out, I'll post here.

        The Chinese Deli is the same operation that was formerly at the corner of Terry and Howell downtown. Pretty much your standard $6 lunch consisting of soup (egg flower or hot and sour), rice (white or fried) and entree (all the american favorites.) Not a fan personally.

    2. I like the "House of Hong" in the international District. They are pretty yummy and affordable too boot. Hmmm....I might have to go there now.

      They serve it cart style and you can order food off a menu too. Try anything with shrimp. (If you like shrimp, of course) fresh and delicious.

        Kelsolake: Did you read the original post? Skyla is looking for Dim Sum in the north part of Seattle and NOT in the ID , , ,
