Dim Sums took Kolkata by storm in 2017 and we found our pick of 6 favourite places to head for warming Asian pockets of goodness.

The Fatty Bao

The newest kid on the block, The Fatty Bao has the softest baos and the mist delicate dim sums. Shout out to their veggie dim sum — an absolute must try is the wild mushroom, edamame and truffle oil dim sum. Wrapped in a beetroot tinted pastry, the colours of the dim sum pop off the plate. The dim sum come with a choice of three dipping sauces, all of which are delicious.

Vintage Asia

Authentic with an intensely Asian vibe, Vintage Asia celebrates everything Asian including dim sum. We espcially love this Xiaolongbao aka soup dumplings. These beauties are finely wrapped dim sum stuffed with {wait for it!} soup! The piping hot soup explodes in your mouth as you put the dumpling in your mouth — pure heaven! Here are all the reasons we love Vintage Asia.
