Best Dim Sum 2011


1172 Alberni St.
(multiple locations)

Kirin retains Gold with an unswerving insistence on quality seasonal ingredients and an army of chefs turning out bijoux dim sum under a central executive chef. The five locations’ modern rooms are all well-maintained, alive with diners looking for their daily yum cha fix. Jade Seafood (Silver) pleases across the menu: innovations such as truffle-oil-kissed mushroom dumplings; fried rice rolls with shrimp, preserved eggs, and pickled ginger; and bitter melon stir-fried with olives have made this a real standout in highly competitive Richmond. Vegetarians especially appreciate the understated Dynasty Seafood Restaurant (Bronze), where they’re treated as more than an afterthought.
