Vegetarian Friendly Dim Sum?

a

I grew up loving dim sum but we need a place that is vegetarian friendly. Anyone have some thoughts on where to go and specific dishes to get or is this an impossible stretch?

Thanks in advance!

    thanks for the suggestions. Someone just tipped me off to a place called Buddha Bodai. Has anyone tried it?

      Yes, but not for dim sum - I'm a big fan of their pan-fried noodles with "seafood" and their hot & sour soup. It's better-than-average kosher vegetarian Chinese, which means it's just pretty good. If there are non-vegetarians in your party, they may be less than thrilled with it.

      Vegetarian Dim Sum House? It's OK compared to regular, non-vegetarian dim sum, but my vegetarian friends LOVED it.

        Yes, this is probably the OPs best bet. Nothing like their full vegetarian dim sum selection anywhere else in the country.

        Two generally well-regarded places: Dim Sum Go Go has a 10 piece vegetarian dim sum platter, which I enjoyed (although it got a little boring after the 7th piece). Red Egg has a fair number of options also, as well as a 1/2 price happy hour. I think the quality's a bit better at Dim Sum Go Go.
