I love going out for brunch in the weekend. Indulging yourself to a perfect start of the day without having to prepare it yourself is a treat. But some mornings, I don’t feel like the usual coffee, bread, eggs and fruit type of brunch. That’s when we go for Dim Sum.
Rotterdam doesn’t have as many choices for dim sum as big cities like London or New York have, but De Lange Muur is a good place to go. It is located close to the central station. Another good place is Paramount. This one is a bit formal for a dim sum restaurant, but the food is arguably better than at De Lange Muur. They both serve a wide variety of steamed or fried dumplings and rolls, vegetables sides and sweets.
Traditionally dim sum is served mid-morning to mid-afternoon and that’s when these places get quite busy. Sadly, in neither restaurant the staff rolls around carts with dim sum as they do in other places I have been to. You have to make your choice via a little paper order form. Soon after your order a procession of circular bamboo vessels, stacked on top of one another will start. You can keep ordering until you are absolutely stuffed. And I promise, it will still be one of the cheapest meals you can have.
