Chi Dim Sum
Time Out says
Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
From the ashes of one of our favourite Chinese restaurants, the now-closed Don Lay, has arisen a second generation. At the start of 2017, Nieves Ye, the daughter of the Don Lay proprietors, opened a space dedicated but not limited to the universe of dim sum – steamed, grilled, fried... You choose your filling from an extensive catalog with photos and descriptions. You'll find a diverse crowd, which does include Chinese diners, but also residents of the Chueca neighbourhood and tourists passing by or staying in the centre. There's an informal ambience, simple decor and functional furniture. Xialong bao, ha kao, shaomi, baozi... learn new concepts while you enjoy these appetising treats, from the one-taste stuffings to little intense explosions of flavour on offer. If that doesn't seem enough to you, they've also got Peking duck, ramen, rice and more.
