Fork in the Road's Updated Dim Sum Dictionary
Way back in 2009, Fork in the Road offered readers an original dim sum visual dictionary, our tool to carry with you as you seek out the best small-plate parlors in the city. It was intended to be a resource for identifying and enjoying the traditional dim sum dishes that abound from Sunset Park to Chinatown.
In anticipation of the upcoming Chinese New Year (which begins this Sunday), we decided to polish up our chopsticks and refer to our sourcebook. While we'll still rely on the established dim sum standbys Dun Huang and East Harbor, we've also sought ought meat-free plates at Chinatown's Vegetarian Dim Sum House.
Here's our updated dim sum dictionary.
