Dim Sum is sold as a variety of dishes being pushed around on carts by various servers. Just point to what you'd like and they add to the running tally on a slip left at your table.
Most of the items at Asian Court are just a few dollars, but there are sometimes "specials" that are a bit more. These can include veggies that are perfectly cooked and generously portioned, but not necessarily the most exotic ingredients.
The exotic authenticity comes across in delicious dishes like braised chicken feet, beef tripe, jellyfish, frogs legs and whole fried salt and pepper shrimp with their heads on.
- Brunch: "Asian Court is very well regarded among local Asian-Americans: some lunchtimes are quite packed! Get there early on weekends to avoid waiting and to avoid your favorites from being sold out."
- Best for Brunch Because: The inviting presentation – seeing and smelling the little metal steamer baskets of food – help you decide what you'd like to try.
