Dim Sum >Bamboo Village
Excellent dim sum away from all of the crowds in the International District.
New Chinese Restaurant in Wallingford.
I immediately noticed how bright the dining area was - it was too bright. Usually Chinese restaurants have low lighting, red carpeting, and some booths to create privacy, but this restaurant has none of these. It's a lot more like eating in a hospital cafeteria with Chinese waitstaff.
We decided to stay anyway and order. A platter of dim sum was quickly offered, but we declined. We ordered a few of our favorite entrees instead. The dried beef chow fun and pork fried rice from the regular menu, & fried calamari off the dim sum menu were good, but the chicken with black bean sauce was heavy on the green peppers and light on the black beans. The sizzling rice soup did not sizzle and was not even hot. We sent it back telling the waitress that it was not hot and she was very nice in taking it back and bringing us more soup as a consolation. The bowl came back full and was very hot.
We waited for what seemed like a long time to get our bill before we left. Two fortune cookies and two almond cookies were brought to us after payment. Staff was very nice in saying goodbye and thank you.
