A gigantic banquet hall with a sea of red and gold tables brings in crowds, especially on the weekend. The best way to sample Chinese food is by trying dim sum, the traditional midday meal featuring a variety of dumpling dishes and other small plates. It’s especially popular on weekends, when the variety of offerings is greatest, although it’s also served on weekdays. If you’re uncertain where to start, try the Shrimp Har Gao (shrimp dumplings) and Char Siu Bao (steamed barbeque pork buns). The restaurant is on the section of Beach Street closest to South Station, and there’s a parking lot above the restaurant.
