Fresh and tasty dim sum with a modern twist.
It’s hard to miss the latest outpost of this popular Chinese dim sum restaurant on Rue des Dames, the fifth to open up in five years. Peek through the giant window and you’ll spot neo-vintage décor and bright colours all around, and this modern approach blends into the menu as well with dim sum stuffed with Charolais beef or chicken pad thai. Everything is freshly-made in-house every day and it shows: the dim sumare delicious, particularly the vegetarian version, which is packed with flavour. Also on offer are traditional recipes, like sticky rice cooked in a lotus leaf that’s perfect for adventurous eaters, and dessert dim sum with flavours like apple and caramel sauce (our favourite) and lemon cream (not so much).
At €15 for the lunchtime meal, which includes a baby spinach salad, six dim sum and rice, and between €5 and €7 for plates of two or three dim sum from the menu, the prices are steeper than the usual Chinese restaurant. But given the quality, they’re definitely worth it.
