My mom and her friend get together for dim sum at Great Taste Bakery & Restaurant in Boston Chinatown. Up until the other day I’d only ever gone there to order baked curry beef buns, baked bbq pork buns, a bag of cake ends, and egg tarts.

On weekends, the restaurant is so jam packed so I don’t even bother waiting. Luckily, I was in town early enough the other day to finally try out the dim sum.

This place is really good compared to the big ones in the area. Space is super tight but if you can get there before 9:45AM, you will be in luck. Or, if you don’t mind waiting.
