While the restaurant serves main course meals, the star of its offerings is the dim sum. Served daily from 10am until close, the menu switches over at 4pm, though be warned that the evening menu is significantly shorter.
All items are made fresh to order, so don't expect a rolling cart to cruise by during dining, as is traditional in a dim sum joint. Nevermind - the food is fresh, the prices are right and the regulars sing Red Egg's praises as one of the best dim sum spots downtown.
