Dim sum is a longtime staple of traditional Chinese cuisine, known for its affordability and convenience. It tends to draw long lines of antsy customers — what did you expect? It's still a form of brunch, perhaps Seattle's most popular meal.
The typical dim sum experience, available from morning until early afternoon, consists of rolling carts piled with inexpensive, small plates of food, presented directly to you at your table. The beauty of it lies in its simplicity: Rather than thumbing through a menu imagining what sounds good, you can simply point at what looks good and say, "That, please."
