I arrived in the area to discover a very busy dim sum restaurant in the Cho Lon part of Saigon. I was asked if I wanted to be seated in the lower floor or the upper floo with air conditioning. I elected on the lower floor so I can have a better feel of the locale seen. After surveying the menu, I settled on steam shrimp rice roll, har gow, and shui mai, the traditional dim sum fare. I had added on an iced Vietnamese coffee as I was in Saigon. The food came immediately and hot. The steamed shrimp rice roll was fresh and flavor full. The har gow was as expected, I had added chili on top for some kick. The shui mai came in 3 varieties, and I had elected for the mixed meat and mixed veggies. It was also very reminiscent of Hong Kong cuisine.
After eating, I had a brief chat with the owner and it turns out they have been running this dim sum restaurant for over 20 years with many regulars coming in on weekends.
If in the area to visit the Guan Yin Temple or the Old Cify Temple, or if you are on the way to Cho Lon Bin Tay Market, I would recommend this dim sum restaurant as a nice stopping point to recharge on dim sum foods.
