Fodor's Expert Review Mei Sum Chinese Dim Sum Restaurant
In contrast to the sprawling, noisy halls in which dim sum is generally served, Mei Sum is compact and shiny bright, not to mention a favorite of locals who work in the area. Be ready to guess and point at the color photos of dim sum favorites; not much English is spoken, but the charades pay off when you get your delicate buns and tasty bites. Don't be shy to ask fellow diners for suggestions. Other menu items and specials are also served. Try the deep-fried garlic eggplant or the house special garlic rice. It's open daily, one of the few places that serves dim sum from 8 am all the way to 9 pm.
