“Best Dim Sum (Yum Cha) in Jacksonville (now called Bamboo Creek)”
Reviewed January 14, 2009

I grew up with Dim Sum every weekend in Australia - a favorite pastime. It was pretty much non-existent in Jacksonville until this place re-opened as "Bamboo Creek". It's in the same strip mall as Mellow Mushroom. The dim sum we had last Sunday there was excellent. Weekends are the best days to have dim sum as there is more selection. You know when the majority of people in there are Asian that this place must be good. The dim sum selection is limited but some of the classics are available eg:

steamed shrimp dumplings
sliced peking duck with hoi sin sauce
tofu skin rolls
bbq pork buns
salt and pepper shrimp
chickens feet (for the game!)

There are about 20 other dim sum selections; however they don't do sliced bbq pork which is a huge favorite of dim sum carnivores. Then again, there's no other dim sum that I know of in Jax so you take what you can get! The a la carte menu is also good, and the servings are huge.
Highly recommended!
