Best Dim Sum in the International District?

drummagick Apr 23, 2013 09:42 PM

My son and I are making a trip over to visit my daughter next month. I grew up in Seattle and had dim sum many times at the old Hong Kong, but none since. Son has never experienced dim sum so I figured it's time. I'm wondering who has the good stuff? And....I have a serious craving for shrimp toast, so it would be nice if that was on their menu too. Thanks!

    There's nothing there that blows me away, but Jade Garden and Harbor City do a pretty passable job.

      Thank you! It doesn't need to be spectacular, just good. Both of those places sound pretty good. :)

      Whoops, replied in the wrong place.

        Shrimp toast may be a stretch to find.

        I have not seen it at Harbor city or Jade Garden.

        Another passable option is Sun Ya.
        However, the majority preference is our group is Harbor City.

          Maybe I'll have to learn to make it myself. I was feeling nostalgic. ;)

            Dim Sum House has shrimp toast but they are on Beacon Hill.

              Hmm... I can do Beacon Hill. I'd like to see the area I grew up in anyway. Thanks!!

              I used to live on 23rd and Orcas, so that's quite close too. :)

            They don't offer dim sum, but Uptown China on Lower Queen Anne has shrimp toast on their menu.
