When your family is coming to visit and you’re deciding where to go to show them why it was worth moving “all the way out here” from Topeka, start with dim sum at Yank Sing. This place is a classic and they make some of the best dumplings in town, from shrimp har gao to pork buns. It’s also good for a work lunch if you want to impress some out of towners. The more people you go with, the more things you can try, so plan accordingly and maybe don’t come here right before you take your family to walk up the Lyon Street Steps.
