Default Looking for Dim Sum

Wife expressed a yen for some Dim Sum, prefer Hong Kong style -were the Dim Sum is paraded around in carts & the servers punch your card, for the final tally-- will drive a hundred miles for a good place

The closest I know of is Yummy House in Ocala on weekend afternoons. We have gone a few times and have enjoyed the food. NYC Chinatown? No, but it is flavorful. I believe there is a Chinese area in Orlando, but I have not been there.

Been to "chinatown" in Orlando. More Viet than China but a great oriental food market. But I'm afraid no dim sum like you want. Best we ever had was in San Francisco at Imperial Garden.You know you found the mother load when you're the only Caucasians in the place. Can anyone from the Villages Gourmet Club shine some light on this?

After reading this thread and posting, I decided to do some online research myself. I stand corrected regarding the Colonial Drive "chinatown" area. Peter's China Bistro gets high marks for Dim Sum served from 11 AM to 3 PM. You can get directions on line but it's about 45 minutes from 466A.

Another high marks place that's closer appears to be Yummy House off I 75 and College Ave in Ocala. You need to call to find out when they're serving Dim Sum.

We've not been to either place but we'll make a trip soon.

From their website... "Dim Sum is available during lunch hours (11:00am - 2:30pm) at Yummy House"

Hey Aloha- we too had a great Dim Sum experience in frisco about 20 years ago--we were walking and asked a Chinese woman ," were is the best Dim Sum" she said, "follow me"-- we did all we could to keep up with her pace , she pointed at a store front and kept on walking--we walked past the store from and saw a couple of Chinese men sitting out front of their business-we asked where's the best Dim Sum" they said " you just walked past it

As we were eating in the restaurant, enjoying our Dim Sum selections-there were two teenager sitting in the back, a third entered and said,"I got a newspaper" the group started devouring the contents of the paper--their enthusiasm for news and content was so enlightening- we said," these kids are going to make it big !!

Bamboo Bistro has some dim sum but it's just mediocre. The best I have found in Florida is a place called Pho Dim Sum in Jacksonville. It is a couple miles more than a 100, maybe 125.

So do double duty and go to Pho for lunch and than go to the Moshi or Cummer museum and than have dinner at Matthews a really great restaurant there. Go on a Monday and their wine list is half price for all bottles under $250. And they have some really great wines.

Jacksonville has a LOT of really good places to eat for a small city. We go up there every 2 or 3 months for nice places to eat. Be glad to give anyone a list as I can name 25 or 30 places worth the trip.

We spent a winter at Ortega Rive Marina, in Jacksonville when we lived on board our boat-most memorable was- On 9/11/2001- I was walking towards the marina office and all the load speakers were commenting about a plane hitting the world trade center in NYc- went back to our boat woke my wife & told her to put the tv on in the master stateroom--nuff said--a few days later we were privileged to attend the Navy anniversary @ NAS JAX--I no longer had any dinner dress, but we dressed, OK the CO of the base said" To those about to go into harms way God Speed"--my wife shed a few tears- as an old war horse I was also moved

This pos t was in to reference to Jacksonville-- so sorry my computer skills are nil
