    1. I love dim sum, too. I just went to a newish, very popular place in San Francisco yesterday. Took use a half-hour to park and a 1 1/2-hour wait!!!, but was worth it, I think. I'd go again, but only on a weekday.

  6. Dimsum is my all-time favorite Chinese food: fresh, yummy, and healthy! Those prawn dumplings with pea sprout sounds more special. Have you ever tried chicken feet? They're my favorite!

    1. I can't bring myself to eat chicken feet, but I just had dim sum again last Sunday at a different restaurant and my friend said they had the best chicken feet he had ever eaten. I got a great photo. Coming soon.
