You may or may not know that I have a complete obsession with dim sum.

Dim sum is one of those things I always want to eat, but rarely do...Steamed lil parcels of perfection, nestled in steaming bamboo baskets, piled high upon crisp white table cloths with lashings of chilli and soy sauce.

I have to have my dumpling fix at least once a week, or I quite simply lose my mind.

Dramatic? Me?

Anyway, I've been hunting high and low for the best canto restaurant in Sydney CBD where it's totally acceptable to eat dim sum anytime, and I think I've cracked it.
