Though I have been going to ‘China Pearl‘, in Chinatown, Boston, for over 25-years, on a regular basis, this, as far as I can recall, is the first time we have been for Dim Sum on a Saturday — as opposed to the customary Sunday. We had to do today, because this was the last weekend of the 2018 Chinese New Year — and tomorrow, Sunday, is going to have torrential rain. While we realized that we might miss the Dragon Parades — and we did — we were NOT going to get soaked.
Dim Sum on a Saturday is different — of that there can be no doubt or debate. The cart service is not as extensive as it is on a Sunday — and as such you also don’t get as many carts coming around. You can say it is definitely a more languid process. The self-service ‘buffet’ by the kitchen was, of course, open and we had a table close to it. So, we made 4 or 5 trips to that. On a Sunday, we would typically just visit that twice.
But, it was OK. Fun, as ever. Busy, BUT not crazy busy. Relaxed. Nice people. At least one recognized me. That was nice.
Glad we went. Beautiful day. Walked from China Pearl to Boston Common.
