At Dim Sum Go Go, the Fried Dishes Trump the Steamed

Max Falkowitz 4 comments

It's been over a decade since I last paid a visit to Go Go, and while we're all thinking about supporting our downtown restaurants, it occurred to me that we've never really taken a stab at the place beyond a couple piecemeal items on this site. How does the dim sum stack up? Pretty well, we'd say—with one major caveat. For best results, stick to the fried food. More

I'm not shooting for the moon at dim sum. Is it fresh? It is piping-hot? Check? Check? Well, alright, then. The steamed rice rolls were the best of my recent meal at New Spring Garden, which serves a respectable dim sum, at times great. More

Edamame dumplings and Cantonese spring rolls: breakfast of champions? Yes, and it's called dim sum. More and more frequently, traces of dim sum can be found in dinner menus throughout the US, and we're not complaining. In fact, we recently snuck into a restaurant kitchen to see how the small dishes are made. Carey Jones even made some dim sum herself, under the careful guidance of Chef Yang Huang of Buddakan. More

Maybe I don't get around to enough dim sum parlors, but this dish was new to me when I had it at East Ocean Palace in Forest Hills a while ago. It's on the dim sum section of the menu listed as fried rice balls stuffed with crab meat ($12.95). My mother-in-law was excited to see these on the menu, and they've since made it onto my hit parade of must-order dim sum items. More

We're big fans of dim sum at Serious Eats and Nom Wah Tea Parlor, on Doyer Street in Manhattan's Chinatown, does not disappoint. Nom Wah has been serving up dim sum since the early 1920s, and many of the chefs working in the kitchen have been there for 30 years—they're masters at what they do. We spent a few hours in the kitchen with all the chefs to see how some of our favorite dim sum dishes were made. More

Red Egg: Great Dim Sum Without The Carts

J. Kenji López-Alt 13 comments

Having grown up hitting the cart-based gigantic Chinese palaces of New York and Boston's Chinatowns for my dim sum fix, I've never really considered menu-based dim sum as a viable dining option. Somehow, checking off boxes and waiting for your food to come is just not quite as fun as pointing at what you want from a stack of steamers. But the truth of the matter is, the quality of the food you get at check-the-box-and-wait establishments is often much higher than at the cart-based operations. And Red Egg is a great example of that. More
