Take weekend brunch to next level with dim sum at Wong's Chopsticks
If you're looking for weekend brunch, consider indulging in some dim sum at Wong's Chopsticks in Johnston.
State of plate: The popular Chinese meal involves ordering lots of little plates and sharing them family-style.
- Make no mistake: The homemade dim sum here outshines many of the more expensive restaurants in bigger cities, even though the menu is smaller.
- Imagine warm steamed buns, crispy fried dumplings and savory, garlic vegetables.
What I like to order: Spareribs ($3.25), porridge ($2.50), steamed BBQ pork buns ($3), pot stickers ($6.95), fried dumpling ($3.85), sweet custard buns ($3) and Chinese broccoli ($8.95).
And keep in mind: This isn't a quick lunch. It takes a little while to make the food from scratch. (But you can also do takeout!)
Open: 11am to 9pm Tues-Sun.
- Dim sum is served 11am to 2pm Sat., 9am to 2pm Sun.
