Dim sum in Vancouver Chinatown
Need to do some shopping in Chinatown next weekend and wondering about dim sum places there. Like most local posters, we mostly frequent other areas of town but wonder if places like Floata etc are any good (or should we do our shopping and head elsewhere?)
Floata is reliable and reputable, you can't go wrong. It's one place that, even when fully packed, I don't feel agoraphobic in, prolly due to the massive room and ballroom ceiling. However given the size of the room, you do have to keep a sharp eye out for the push carts as they scoot around fast.
But you may have to wait in line. It's really the ONLY dim sum house in Chinatown nowadays.
There's also Garden Villa on at 127 E. Pender but it's way smaller than Floata.
Both offer push carts, BTW :-D
