There’s no better feeling than watching your favorite dim sum rolling out of the kitchen in a push-cart, fresh out of the steamer. At City View, the cart-style dim sum is some of the best in the city, and it’s hard to go wrong with whatever you choose here. We recommend the scallop siu mai, chicken feet, and sticky rice wrapped in lotus leaf. End the lunch (or weekend dim sum brunch) with an order of taro puffs, which are stuffed with a slightly sweet, creamy filling. If you’re here with a large group, remember to order two or three of each selection – most baskets have only two to four items in them.
