Best dim sum and xiao long bao in Vancouver?
"Best dim sum" is a bit of a minefield...so I'll just list down some of my current favourites - Sea Harbour (Richmond), Fisherman's Terrace (Richmond), Kirin (Richmond, Coquitlam, and Vancouver). I've been hearing good reports of Dynasty Seafood (Vancouver) - I've been to dinner there only, so I can't give first-hand recommendation. But the dinner (which focused on their vegetarian options) was really good.
I don't do a lot of dim sum lately. Hopefully, others will come by with their own recs.
There are several that garner high praise from folks here. I think quality can be quite subjective, and you may find yourself splitting hairs comparing XLB from these establishments:
Chen's Shanghai Kitchen (Richmond)
Wang's (Burnaby Crystal Mall food court)
Long's Noodle House (Vancouver)
Shanghai Village (Richmond)
Shanghai River (Richmond)
Golden Great Wall (Vancouver)
Top Shanghai Cuisine (Richmond)
Shanghai JJ (Richmond)
Northern Delicacy (Richmond)
