Opened in 1981, the Pink Pearl remains Vancouver's best spot for dim sum. The sheer volume and bustle here are astonishing, and at peak times you may have to wait up to (or only, depending on your patience level) 15 minutes for a table. Dozens of waiters parade a cavalcade of trolleys stacked high with baskets, steamers, and bowls of dumplings, spring rolls, shrimp balls, chicken feet, and even more obscure and delightful offerings. At the tables, extended Chinese families banter, joke, and feast; towers of empty plates pile up in the middle, a tribute to the appetites of the brunchers, as well as the growing bill. Fortunately, dim sum is still a steal, perhaps the best and most fun way to sample Cantonese cooking.
