Get Sum Dim Sum

Get Sum Dim Sum looks suspiciously like a Panda Express, but I knew that I loved their siu mai before my first visit because my brother brought some back home for me to sample a month ago.  Not knowing what to eat before catching Fiddler on the Roof at the Bass Concert Hall, I decided that it was the perfect time to...."Get Sum Dim Sum!"  Har har har.

And you know what?  As lame as the name is and as much as it looks like an Americanized Chinese fast food joint, Get Sum Dim Sum sure offers some delicious dim sum!  However, I hear that the prices are better at Fortune Restaurant and there's definitely more variety at either Fortune or Chinatown on Mopac.  But if you need a quick and delicious meal close to campus, there's no reason to pass on this place.

You must order the pork siu mai.  The ingredients are the freshest I've had at any dim sum restaurant, and they're huge!  As for the other dishes I tried, they were all excellent.  I really don't think you can go wrong with any of the dishes on the menu.

Pork Siu Mai

Steamed Spinach Dumplings

Law Bok Go-pan-fried turnip cake with Chinese sausage

Eggplant Stuffed with Shrimp

Gai Mei Bao-baked bun with coconut

  1. You know, I am so glad you liked GSDS! I've had some really great food there, especially those awesome pork siu mai, but it sounds like some others haven't had experiences nearly as good. Yay for dumplings!

  2. looks good! I haven't tried this place yet. Fortune is definitely good and affordable.

  3. On the other hand, it looks like you totally avoided the universal favorite...CHANG FEN. :D
