Dim Sum, Chau Chow City, Sunday the 14th, 11 am


Join us for dim sum before the Dowbrigade heads to distant lands. We will gather at Chau Chow City, 83 Essex Street in Chinatown, for dim sum on Sunday, March 14th at 11 am. Friends, significant others, and family members are welcome, too. Look for Sun, j, or Michael.

South Station is the closest stop on the Red Line (and may be the closest subway stop). Chinatown is the closest stop on the Orange Line. There is a tiny parking lot very close to the restaurant that is not free. Street parking may be available a short walk away in the financial district. If you could let me know in advance if you plan to join us, that would be very helpful because when Sun and I get to the restaurant, we can put in a request for a table if we know how many are coming. If you’re coming from the Somerville/Cambridge/Arlington area and want to travel there with someone, let me know ’cause I’ll be coming from that direction and I know how to get to the restaurant.

Dim sum is Chinese food that some people think is quite tasty. It’s often eaten for brunch. The Chau Chow City waitstaff roams the restaurant with carts filled with steamed foods, fried goodies, dumplings, soup, seafood, and assorted desserts. Customers select what to eat as the carts pass by. The food is often served in steamer containers with 2 or 3 items per container. Going with a group can work well because there’s more opportunity to share and try different items. It is possible to order from Chau Chow City’s menu.

Addendum 3/15: Nice group for dim sum. Tasty food, too.
