Family-owned Bo Lings Chinese Restaurant, on Kansas City's renowned Country Club Plaza, makes this list largely because of its dim sum – a tradition since 1987. Dim sum is available on Saturdays and Sundays, from 11-3 (also at 91st & Metcalf in Overland Park, Kan.), and the Plaza location offers a limited dim sum menu daily. Employees circulate carts throughout the dining room, featuring piping hot and fresh dim sum selections such as steamed pork buns, Beef Chow Funn Noodles; and shrimp, or scallops and chives, and dumplings. Handheld trays feature chef's special plates. Not in the mood for dim sum? Check the enormous menu from which dishes incorporating tender beef have received high marks among guests, as have Hot and Sour Soup or Sweet and Sour Chicken. Beautiful décor provides a modern vibe reminiscent of larger cities.
- Asian: "Available from 3-6 p.m., Monday-Friday, Happy Hour at Bo Lings on the Country Club Plaza features beer, wine and cocktail specials, including Mai Tais and Sapporo Draft, with food specials priced from $2 to $5. In addition order from a sushi menu between 4 and 6 p.m."
- Best for Asian Because: One of the Kansas City area's oldest family-owned Asian restaurants consistently delivers quality dishes.
