Furama is an Uptown staple. The large two story spot has been serving Mandarin and Cantonese favorites since 1985. This spot specializes in dim sum, and you can get it any time of day, not just in the mornings, late at night, or on the weekends. Want to come for dinner and indulge in sweet and sour chicken plus barbecued pork buns and egg custards? Go for it. Even though it’s not the best dim sum in Chicago (we prefer Minghin in Chinatown or D Cuisine in Lincoln Park), the ability to mix and match family-style dishes and dim sum whenever we want is why we head to Furama over other spots in the neighborhood.

Food Rundown

Barbecue Pork Buns

Good barbecue pork, with a fluffy bao.

Pork Dumplings

Sometimes a little overcooked, but a tasty option.

Fried Crab & Shrimp

This dim sum dish is a crab and shrimp mixture that’s been formed into a square block and lightly fried. Heavy on the shrimp flavors and really good.

Egg Custard

Pastry shell is delicious, and the the custard isn’t too sweet.

Seafood Combination with Vegetables

Jumbo shrimp, fresh scallop, squid, cuttlefish, baby corn and straw mushroom in a garlic sauce. A good seafood dish to share amongst a few.
