Dim Sum.

Have you ever had dim sum? After ten years of living in New York City, I had not experienced it until this fall. The tradition of Dim Sum, which means "point of heart" in Chinese, is a celebration of life, food, and tea with loved ones. It was slightly out of my comfort zone (I am the type of eater who likes to see ingredient lists on menus before trying something new...), but I was eager to experience it for the first time with a table full of friends.

We met up at Jing Fong in Chinatown one early Saturday morning and ordered an array of food from the carts. My favorite item was a flat fried bread covered in noodles, cilantro, and soy sauce. For hours we selected bowls of food as they rolled by, talked, and laughed. It was a New York City first I will remember for years to come! New Yorkers, what is your favorite dim sum spot?

  1. I hate to admit it, but I'm petrified of eating in Chinatown without a guide or firm review. It's so out of my comfort zone, so I rarely venture there. Thanks for this recommendation! I'll be sure to keep it in my back pocket in case I ever work up the nerve to take a foodie adventure. It sounds delicious and that space look like such a fun experience!

    1. I don't go there often, either. Dim Sum was a little scary for me, but very fun! I would love to find a really gourmet Chinatown restaurant. If you find one let me know!
