Best dim sum I have had in Chicago. Fast, hot, good and cheap! But of course have to wait for a table while being squeezed by the door.

this South Side neighborhood, you’ll find authentic
Chinese restaurants dotting the length of Wentworth
Avenue. After a meal of dim sum, noodles, duck or
other tantalizing food specialties, satiate your
visual appetite with dozens of public art sculptures
