Beijing Beijing 高朋滿座


Back in December, I had dim sum at Beijing Beijing with a bunch of people from work. There were 12 of us and we had a big round table with a spinning tray in the middle. That's the best way to have dim sum in my opinion. I got to try a huge variety of dishes including ones that I wouldn't normally order.


This will be a very picture intensive post. I don't have a lot of comments since I can't remember any details, so I'll just let the pictures speak for themselves.

The food was decent, but presentation was sloppy and flavours were lacking. I still prefer Tasty Noodle for its ambiance and quality.

Have you tried Urban China in downtown yet? They seem to be the "it" spot for dim sum right now! From what I could tell on my visit, it was pretty good. I still have yet to try Beijing Beijing though.

@letsomnom: Actually I have! Just haven't gotten the chance to write a post yet. It was pretty good on my first visit, but second time there wasn't a lot of food left by the time we sat down at 12:45 pm on a Sunday. The $5 coupon they give after every meal is a nice discount though!
