South Garden Chinese Restaurant
This Kendall Cantonese restaurant serves dim sum every day from 11am to 3pm, but Sunday is the best day to come for the full push cart experience. The big dining room has a 3D wall installation of two phoenixes looking over the lacquered dark wooden tables, where you’ll see a mix of abuelitas who lunch and aunties meeting for a cup of tea, a few bao, and some gossip. South Garden serves great baked roast pork buns with a generous amount of char siu filling, along with solid fun gor, which features a smooth, chewy skin concealing a crunchy pork and vegetable filling. But do not leave here without getting an order of steamed lava buns filled with salted egg yolks. It strikes a perfect balance between savory and sweet.
