Best of Boston

1998 Best Dim Sum

China Pearl

Once again, China Pearl has proven itself the gem in an otherwise lackluster world of Hub dim sum. Quite simply, this Chinatown eatery has more seating, more circulating food carts, tastier morsels on the carts and fresher ingredients in the morsels. Don’t underestimate the value of freshness in the sea of warmed-over Chinese-food impersonations.
