Dim Sum behind the Zürich Bahnhof

Psst. Hey... hey you.

Yes, I am talking to you. Come on over here. Yesss, over here behind the Bahnhof in Zurich. I won't hurt you. It is ok. I just have something I want to show you. Just take my hand, I promise you will like it.

(Walking along the river, behind the Bahnhof, snickering and ducking behind trees...dragging you the whole way...)

You see that building over there... yeah the one next to the Landesmuseum? That is THE place to get DIM SUM in Zürich. I am telling you because I know because I heard about it on the Zürich Spotted by Locals site from my fellow Spotter Roman.

Jace and I went there about two weeks ago now, and all that Jace could say while scoffing down his huge portion of dim sum was, 'Why didn't you tell me about this earlier? Why did you try and keep this from me?' Yeah, it is that good that I am punished for not taking him there before I even knew it existed.

My steamed dumplings. Yum. Their soy sauce is also thick and delish.
I wouldn't be surprised if this was also homemade.
Roman is totally right about his review. The dim sum is excellent, the portions are huge, and the value is second to none.

Jace got a big order of the pan fried dumplings and I got the big order of the steamed. Next time I will get the smaller size as the big was truly BIG.

I love the fact, too, that the dim sum are hand made daily from a family recipe passed down and improved upon over generations and that the husband and wife team continue to serve us excellent authentic Chinese dim sum along the Limmat. If you are looking for a quick and good place to grab some authentic Chinese in the middle of Zürich - try the Dim Sum hut behind the Bahnhof. You will not be disappointed!

Looks pretty yummy. Too bad I can't travel up there all the time. I guess I'll have to keep making it all by hand!

I'm so jealous! I haven't seen dim sum in Denmark yet. The dishes look quite delicious.
