Dim Sum Oriental Cuisine

Most other San Antonio Chinese restaurants reserve dim sum for weekend brunches, but this newcomer makes waves with its day-and-night offerings: 85 choices on a traditional paper menu with boxes waiting to be checked (the roaming carts show up on the weekend). Ask your server for recommendations, but don’t be afraid to step out of your comfort zone. Steamed barbecue dumplings were little light clouds of texture and smoky flavor, while steamed tendon was a bit like savory gummy worms—and better than you think. Shrimp-stuffed eggplant features minced shrimp, rather like a moist croquette slathered in a rich soy-based sauce. There’s also a full menu with extensive Cantonese offerings (less fiery than Sichuan). Good service in a rather nondescript but pleasant setting.
