If you love dim sum, two-story Ton Kiang is the best place to indulge. Visitors and locals line up early for the chance to take a seat and browse the passing trays of delish potstickers and dumplings filled with every imaginable combination of mushrooms, peas, spinach, cabbage, shrimp, scallops, pork, and crab. The dai dze gao (scallop and shrimp dumplings with cilantro), and gao choygot (green chives and shrimp dumpling) are so crunchy, light and perfect, you will inhale them and keep asking for more. If dim sum is not your style, the regular menu, filled with delicacies from southeastern China—including clay-pot casseroles and Peking duck—is always available. By the way, the hours on the website are incorrect; the hours below are correct.
