Tired of strolling around the famous ‘Albert Cuyp Market and you’ve tried all the Dutch delicacies such as ‘Stroopwafel’, ‘Bitterballs’ and herring but still feeling hungry? Time for a (light) Asian bite. Dim sum is one of my favourite snacks! You could already find the fancy food truck of Dim Sum Now at several festivals last summer, but they finally have a spot in the middle of the “Pijp’.
This tiny, but cute place, is the perfect place to eat-in or take-out. They have a great, but small, menu with various gyoza’s (dumplings filled with ground meat, fish or veggies), dumplings and Chinese steamy buns with Shanghai pork or egg & custard! If you can’t choose, try the fix Dumpling or Gyoza XL menu with seaweed salad, Edamame beans and tea, for only € 9.95.
My favourite: Shao mai (veal) and the pork gyoza!
Good to know: the little dim sums are prepared without MSG or other taste enhancers. Another reason to try these healthy little ones, for a little price.
