Delish Dim Sum On Upper West Side…

Reasonable Chinese Sibling Debuts

Decent restaurants are few and far between in the high rent culinary wasteland better known as the upper west side.

Recently, a Chinatown Cantonese and dim sum institution opened uptown.

Jing Fong

Jing Fong has been downtown since 1978. It is a 20,000 square food dim sum palace, seating 800.

The newest addition is located on Amsterdam and 78th Street.

It is small yet attractive.

Chef’s Counter

There are no dim sum carts uptown, but there is a 10-seat Chef’s Counter where diners can overlook chefs creating the bao and dumplings.

We both ordered imported beers that fit the bill of thirst quenching on a very warm October evening.

Sauteed String Beans

We kicked things off with a bounty of fabulous Sauteed String Beans in a delicious sauce ($8).

Shrimp & Chive Dumplings

Soon after our order of Crispy Shrimp and Chive Dumplings arrived. They were hot, crispy and tasty ($8).

Crab, Shrimp, Spinach Dumplings

We followed the crispy dumplings with steamed Crab, Shrimp and Spinach Dumplings which were tender and moist ($8).

Salt and Pepper Squid

We rounded the meal off with a wonderful Salt & Pepper Squid with sauteed onions and scallions ($11).

Service is prompt and prices are very reasonable.

Jing Fong is a great addition to the UWS.
