Since the restaurant specializes in barbecue, it's the focal point of many dishes. Glistening mounds of young chow fried rice reveal chunks of honey-barbecued pork, juicy baby shrimp, peas, carrots, flurry scrambled egg and chewy Chinese sausage. Don't miss the soy sauce chicken, which comes with a tiny dish of sauce that oddly resembles chimichurri except it's made with ginger and green onion.
Colorful orange signage and manga-inspired illustrations pepper the space, which feels more like a cool converted warehouse in the heart of a major city than a restaurant in a Norcross strip mall. Bento is of Taiwanese descent for its hard-to-find home-style dishes and real-deal street snacks.
It’s crazy that Atlanta’s best dim-sum restaurant is in the back of a supermarket off Pleasant Hill Road in Duluth, but the quality of the food at Best BBQ is undeniable. Atlanta’s Chinese community obviously agrees, because this stall located in the Great Wall Supermarket always has the longest lines. Instead of dealing with carts, room temperature food, and long waits for your favorites to come around like at traditional dim sum restaurants, Best churns out made-to-order dim sum treats that come out steaming and delicious.
A ski lodge in Duluth may seem like the least likely place to find some great dim sum, but appearances are deceiving. With pork siu mai dumplings, silken tofu drizzled with a tangy ginger sauce and somewhere around 170 more exotic offerings, East Pearl will satisfy the dim sum lover every time.
When your brain isn’t working at full capacity, dim sum is the perfect meal. You don’t have to make any difficult decisions and there is instant gratification. Lots of fried shrimp dishes and pork-filled buns don’t hurt either. Golden House is the most consistent player in the dumpling game and the crazy weekend crowds prove it. Take the kids, but just make sure you get there after noon when the chefs come or you’ll have a limited selection. They also make excellent fried rice and have whiteboard specials like live shrimp ready for the deep fryer. — Jennifer Zyman
