Premade Dim Sum in restaurants?
I have seen a few wholesale dimsum stores, selling premade items. Does anyone know which restaurants are using them & which make their own? Bonus points if you know which are really clean..I've been reading vancouver restaurant health inspections and found awful stuff in most.
Serving pre-made, frozen stuff is pretty common. Most of the neighbourhood-class dim sum joints use pre-made for at least some of their dishes. Only a few - usually the larger and/or "higher-end" places make their own. (I'm thinking of places like Red Star, Dynasty, Kirin - though Kirin may have a shared commissary, Sea Harbour, Jade, Top Gun, etc). A few smaller ones do it too - eg Good Choice, Golden Paramount, Bing Sheg, etc)
1newyorkguy - have you been to Dynasty Seafood (Broadway)? They have a good vege list - and they make their own dimsum. Also try the Buddha's Feast while you are at it.
