I certainly agree this was a great list. In my area, Atlanta, we also see plates of roast duck and BBQ pork on the carts and sometimes fried shrimp paste on sugar cane sticks or shrimp paste balls covered with noodles and fried. Sometimes we also see stuffed eggplant that was steamed and split long green peppers that are stuffed. We also see clams in black bean sauce,
GEONIT, I would appreciate it if you or another can give the Cantonese or Mandarin names for these items and fit them into your list.
Good job Geonit: I could never work my way through that menu and though it give s you a reall good idea of what is out there. Most of the time I just sorta pick what looks good and a good portion o f the time, I get lucky and get some tasty stuff and when I find it, I order more.
Great with libation.

thanks for that thorough and detailed list – now i need to have dimsum, it’s been too long! [:D]
Are the Chinese greens those Chinese broccolis?
There are also some baked dumplings….I especially like one that is a very flaky crust filled with a curried minced beef.
I am obsessed with sesame balls!
In Texas, there are two dim sum restaurants that I frequent that do all of the above dishes and more and are very good.
In, Dallas, (Garland) Arc-en-Ciel
In, Austin, T&S Seafood.
Great list, GeoNit!

Sundancer7 s request for more dim sum information on another thread inspired me to dig out 30+ years of notes and menus accumulated from numerous trips to several U.S. cities and Toronto ON.
