Cancelled due to low turn out-----Dim Sum at Pheonix in China Town, Chicago

Introduction Dimsum: In the Canton provinces, many people gather at tea houses during the morning and early afternoon to socialize or conduct business over small meals. In China this is most popularly called going to yum cha – going to tea – because the drinking of tea is so strongly associated with the snack foods served. In the United States, however, we are most familiar with the term dim sum to describe these small meals. Dim sum, literally translated from the Cantonese, means “dot-hearts”, small treats that touch the heart.

  Celebrating 17 years.  Phoenix Chinese Restaurant opened in May 1996, renowned by locals as well as world travelers.At Phoenix, we serve authentic Hong Kong style Dim Sum hand crafted from our own kitchen.   Phoenix Chinese Restaurant believes that quality  is the keystone of a great meal.  Our menu offers culinary creations of authentic Hong Kong style cooking using only the best and freshest ingredients.  

I love this place!!! I have been going here since I was only 19 years old and what a wonderful experience. The food is amazing, fresh and light!  Talk about something different to tease the taste buds, this is it.

Dim Sum is much like Tapas.  When ordering the small plates, usually there are 3-4 pieces on each plate.  It is best to order many little plates to share with your table mates.  They come around with little serving carts with steam baskets of delectable treats!  You get to choose the items you want and of course it is better shared!

I am only opening this to 16 people because any more would be more than I or the restaurant could handle.  We will leave our house at 8 and hopefully be seated by 9 -9:30 a.m.  

After we have Dim Sum then we can all explore China Town for the remainder of the morning and even possibly stay for lunch if anyone chooses to do so! 

This is a wonderful experience!  Don't miss it!

    We are going to re-schedule this for when the weather is nicer and we can walk around China Town. Low turn out makes this difficult.
