There aren't a lot of dim sum restaurants in the DC/VA/MD area. Some are pretty horrible, but there are a few that are good. One of my new favorite dim sum places is Asian Delight in Silver Spring. They just opened in April and the inside is so pretty! On the weekends, they even have the dim sum rolling around in carts like the traditional style!
Asian Delight has a big variety of dim sum to choose from. Steamed, pan fried, deep fried and lots of baked desserts too! Just check out these pictures and try not to drool on your keyboard! This is eggplant stuffed with fish and shrimp.
Here are some steamed dishes.
Chinese broccoli. Very healthy!
My mom loves dessert, so we got a lot! This was really good. There's like peanuts and other yummy sweetness inside this soft bun.
This is Tofu Flower. It's basically very soft and silky tofu in syrup. It's very good and even though it has syrup in it, it is healthy I think. The tofu balances it out.
I don't remember what this is called, but it's a lil bit sweet and it feels bouncy like tapioca balls.
More buns! These are the BBQ pork buns. Yum Yum!
I also love the rice noodles with the fried dough inside. But I forgot to take a picture. You need to specially order it. The wait staff is very nice. Their service is so much better than most Chinese restaurants. Let me know if you try this place and what your favorite dishes are!
