Chis Chinese Express Restaurant Review Little Rock Arkansas Saturday Morning Dim Sum

While they have several locations in Little Rock, its the Chenal Parkway location that serves dim sum, at least on the Saturday morning we stopped by. Chis Chinese Express Restaurant Review Little Rock ArkansasCould happen at other locations or on other days, I didn’t inquire. I’ll leave that to you.

I lived and worked in China for a number of years, so I’m snotty about Americanized Chinese ‘cuisine.’ So I’ve never been in a Panda Express or a P.F. Changs. Let me know if my life is somehow missing some bliss because of that.

So I was skeptical about the offer of a dim sum brunch in Little Rock. I asked all the relevant questions of my dine-mate. “Does it come in little baskets?” “Are there ladies pushing carts around?” “Do they have chicken feet?”

Affirmative to all.

The menu and server explanations were Americanized for sure, but the food was very authentic and very good. Lots of steamed dumplings, Chinese vegetables and the like. Overserved.

The restaurant is very tastefully decorated in subtle tones – surprising for a strip mall location next to Dominos (which was a comfort in case the food was really bad, I could have them run a pizza over) (Yes, I agree, Dominos is awful).

The entire facility, including the restrooms and what I could see of the open kitchen, was immaculate. There are tables that can be pushed together in alcoves to fit modest sized groups. The regular Chinese menu is available concurrent with the dim sum.

Pricing is fair. Recommended.

Beaverton, OR – Wong’s King

They were not terribly busy when we walked in, but biz picked up when a bus load of Chinese tourists stopped by half-way through our meal.

The crowd was small enough that they only needed one loaded trolley to serve the room, but that trolley was full of dim sum deliciousness.  We went for some shrimp dumplings, a little pork, some ribs, and added (from the kitchen menu) choi sum (green vegetable with garlic) and some salt/pepper prawns in the shell.

Back in my days of living on Lamma Island, in the South China Sea, salt/pepper prawns at the Sampan Restaurant (who were also my landlord), was one of my regular meals.   This entree took me right back there, prepared exactly the way you would find in Cantonese China.

So six plates, 2 hot tea, about $20 of Mrs. BDB’s money, not including tip.  A great deal, a great meal, and as always, great company and conversation.  Sweet!
