Who’s got two thumbs and is behind on blogging? *points to self*
So! This dim sum thing has, to my delight, become a regular occurrence. Every weekend, on Saturday or Sunday morning, you can find a group of anywhere from four to a dozen expats meeting up in the 13th and noisily consuming stacks of steamer baskets full of plump dumplings.
We recently started trying a new place, Tricotin, which is right across the street from our other usual dim sum place, La Chine Massena. I like it because it has huge windows that look out into the street, which let a lot of light in. I also love the fried items on the menu, in which La Chine Massena is sadly lacking.
On the minus side, no carts. You order from a printed menu. It feels a little less “authentic” that way.

The rule for dim sum in Paris seems to be: get there early. We always plan our outings for 11am and never have trouble getting a table, even for a dozen people. But around noon, it gets so busy that sometimes it’s standing room only for the people who are waiting.
