Get Sum Dim Sum

4400 North Lamar Boulevard
Austin, TX 

When my dad wanted to take us out for dim sum, we discovered that all of our usual haunts had shut down. This left us with the dangerous prospect of eating untested dim sum, but I used Yelp to help us find somewhere that other people liked, and once we saw Get Sum Dim Sum's website, we decided to give them a chance, despite the dumb name. Luckily the dim sum was actually very well made, although quite ordinary - the menu clearly sticks to relatively tame dishes (no chicken feet or tripe to be found). We all enjoyed the food, though my mom had some complaints about the price, since she is used to cheaper dim sum. Still, for a central Austin location with some trendy decor, I didn't think the pricing was out of line, and the food was fresh and tasty, so it still gets a thumbs up from me.

  1. Dumb name? It's a great name! Almost as good as that New York fish and chip place called A Salt and Battery. That's just given me an idea - you could open another one called Fish and Chip Plaice. Sorry.
