Dim Sum in Chicago December 7, 2019 by David & Laura Speer, posted in BEST Asian Food, Chicago, Eat it all, food, Foodie, fortune, friends, friendship, physics, RSNA A quick lunch between lectures with my friends at a Dim Sum Restaurant – dim sum[ˌdim ˈsəm]NOUN a Chinese dish of small steamed or fried savory dumplings containing various fillings, served as a snack or main course. We ordered too much, but loved it. The salt and pepper soft shell crab was the tastiest! I also love the sesame balls for dessert. My boss Ray and close friend Vince.
