Round two. London style.
I’ve never waited so long for dim sum.
The Californian in me is used to early brunches (early enough that they should probably be called breakfast) and dim sum is no exception. Dim sum can start as early as 9 a.m. with most of the morning crowd arriving by 11:00 a.m.
That was not the case of Overseas Chinese or, in fact, any dim sum restaurant in London’s Chinatown. Everything was closed – boba shops (understandably), dim sum restaurants, and even the Chinese buffets! The only two things open were Chinese bakeries (which nearly tempted us into spoiling our appetites) and cafés.
