Brunch Must-Have of the Week: Dim Sum

Guilin Chinese Restaurant just launched Hong Kong-style dim sum with cart service on the weekends.

Mimosa brunches aren’t big in China, but tea brunch is. It’s called dim sum.

Most popular in Cantonese regions, dim sum features a variety of bite-sized food such as dumplings, buns, chicken feet, and dessert.

While only a handful of restaurants in Tucson offer dim sum, east side’s Guilin Chinese Restaurant recently began offering Hong Kong-style dim sum with cart service on the weekends.

Grab a group of friends, order a pot of tea, and order whatever looks tasty. Depending on your appetite, your total will probably end up at about $15 to $25 per person plus tip.

Although Sushi Lounge on the south side still has our favorite dim sum thanks to its made-to-order freshness, Guilin easily earns a visit for some of the friendliest Chinese restaurant service this side of the Santa Cruz.

Guilin Chinese Restaurant is located at 4445 E. Broadway Blvd. For more information, visit guilintucson.com.
