Best Dim Sum 2010

Gold: Kirin

Silver: Sun Sui Wah
Bronze: Gingeri
Honourable Mention: Shanghai River
Honourable Mention: Red Star

More than any other Chinese restaurant in town, Kirin (Gold) pays attention to the seasonal and the local, which means its dim sum menu is updated monthly. Despite its size, the room also manages unflagging consistency in both service and food prep. When on Main Street, hit Sun Sui Wah (Silver), where much of the packed room will order the baked tapioca pudding (a must). Bronze goes to Gingeri, where dim sum is fresh and highlighted by clean flavours. Honourable Mentions: Shanghai River dishes excellent house-made dumplings and Chinese doughnuts; Red Star is the go-to place for old-school dim sum.
