Dim sum

Are there any good Dim Sum restaurants in Fort Myers or the surrounding areas?

        Charlie Chiang's in North Naples does dim sum brunch but it is miserable :-(
        Chinese food is a problem here. LMF

    1. El Chinese off of 41 and Daniels (same plaza as Outback) is pretty much the only option.

        Is it edible. I live quite close by and have never given it a thought. Can you talk a little about it? Thanks LMF

        Just looked at trip advisor and found this:

        E.L. Chinese (The name is the initials “E.L.”, not “El” as it says above) is the best AUTHENTIC Chinese food in Fort Myers. E.L. is almost always half full of native Chinese diners, which has always been the mark of a good authentic Chinese restaurant. The Dim Sum is near as good as you'll find in NY or Chicago Chinatown. We have been eating here for over 10 years, and have never had a disappointing meal. The Americanized-Chinese dishes on the menu are pretty good, but I recommend trying the more exotic, real Chinese food here. The Chow-Fun, the various noodle soups, the Dim Sum, and all of the dumplings are especially recommended.

          It is good and for sure edible! I have to agree with the trip advisor review, it is the closest to real Chinese food in this area (very sad that Bo Lings had to close). For the dim sum they have a decent selction and you just mark what you want, there are no carts going around. All the food I have oredered has been good, never disappointed. I definitely recommend you to try even if you didn't live close by. I live in Naples and once in a while I take a trip over there.

              No problem. Let me know what you think about it if you go.
