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.
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.
