One of the best ways to experience food with family and friends is dim sum.
Instead of having to choose just one appetizer or main course, a seemingly endless amount of food is at your disposal. Get your fill by choosing from a plethora of bite-sized delicacies of all shapes and flavors all presented for your eyes on carts rolled from table to table. Dim sum consists of delicious sweet and savory mini dishes like dumplings and pork buns.
It’s best enjoyed with a group of people, as it offers you an opportunity to sample a wide range of Chinese cuisine. Part of the fun is having the carts come to your table and seeing what’s available for you to dine on.
Here’s where you can enjoy dim sum in Wichita.
