Dim sum is super popular in my hometown of Vancouver and it’s typical for us to head out for yummy dumplings and other treats on Sunday mornings – a Chinese brunch of sorts. In Madrid, I was thrilled to discover Dim Sum Market, where they serve up my favourite pork buns as well as other amazing dim sum goodies all week long, for lunch and dinner. There is no long wait for the weekend!
The menus at their two locations – one in Sol, the other in Chamberí – are extensive. Full of popular dim sum offerings like baos, steamed buns, Shumai, spring rolls, gyozas, noodles, and wonton soup, it’s tempting to just throw up your hands and tell them you’d like one of everything because making a decision just seems way too hard.
I am particularly fond of their fried gyozas, pork buns, chicken fried noodles, soup dumplings, and chicken satay baos, but I hardly think you can go too wrong with whatever you choose. Everything is so flavourful and tasty! While it’s difficult not to always eat the same things I know and love, I try to get something different every time I go. I have yet to be disappointed.
In their small, contemporary restaurants and through the modern presentation of their food, the folks at Dim Sum Market have successfully brought the traditional into the present day. It is the perfect place to go for a delicious meal in a cool, easy-going setting. You will not leave hungry!
