"I want the best dim sum in NYC"

I have a high bar for Dim Sum - no gummy dumplings, please. HK or Vancouver caliber, if possible

Re: I want the best dim sum in NYC

Hi Amy, I forgot that I had posted this question on a different community I belong to. Here are some of their answers:

For dim sum made fresh to order - Red Egg or Dim Sum Go Go. For good dim sum with communal tables and rolling carts - Grand Harmony.

Oriental Garden is excellent. I think the NYT said they were the best dim sum in the city but I have always thought so. Really cheap and not too loud or crowded.

If you're looking for amazing vegan dim sum, check Buddha Bodai:

Maybe not totally dim sum but you have to get the soup dumplings at Joe's Shanghai:
www.joeshanghairestaurants.com

Although really a fusion type restaurant, try Chinatown Brasserie. The dim sums are very delicate (ie not too large and have thin translucent wrappings/skins): this is true indication of good dim sum.

Pings Seafood on Mott street.

It's making me hungry writing this reply!

Dim Sum and what makes it Good or Bad?

Dim sum is a Cantonese term for a Chinese meal composed of small, individual servings of food typically presented in a small, round steamer basket or plate.

Good dim sum certainly hinges on the quality of the ingredients. However other things like appropriate serving temperature for the dishes and the selection of the correct wrappers (rice flour, noodle, wheat starch) for the various items is important.

There are many types of dim sum dishes, with popular options being: shrimp dumplings, shaomai, steamed buns, potstickers, spring rolls and various sweet dishes like egg tarts, longan tofu and jin deui.

Brands I've heard of are Keurig, Breville, Bunn, Tassimo, Senseo and Gevalia, but I'd like a recommendation on which is the most highly rated and the best value. Hoping for a price around $150 or lower as I'm a little cost conscious right now!
