Our family was visiting Charlotte and I had an enormous craving for dim sum. Especially since the dim sum offerings in Pittsburgh leave quite a bit to be desired.
We stopped in on a weekday for lunch so that means that you can have dim sum if you want, but you have to order off a menu instead of picking off a steam cart. The steam cart and the delicious desserts are for the weekends only. Darn.
However, even though we had to order off the menu, everything ... and I mean EVERYTHING ... we ordered was delicious. Not one clunker amongst the bunch.
So, here's what we ordered:
Siu Mai (pork and shrimp dumplings, steamed)
Stuffed bean curd (fried tofu with shrimp)
Pork bun (steamed)
Sharkfin dumpling - perfect
Fried dumpling - also perfect
Spring roll (chicken) - yep, perfect
Sesame ball - my kids loved this
Again, everything we ordered was excellent and the service was quite attentive and cheerful. Our pre-tip total came to $32 for our family of 4.
I wish I lived closer to this little gem of a place. But for tourists who ended up here thanks to Yelp, this was a highlight for me on this trip!
