Dim sum is my favorite Chinese food. I love feeling of picking a varity of bite-size food and desserts. Especially, I like the style of being served steaming-hot, fresh-made dim sum dishes in the baskets on the carts rolling around without leaving the chair. Joy Tsin Lau is such kind of traditional dim sum restaurant in the center of Philly Chinatown. My husband craved for chicken feet and pork intestine, kind of weird taste in my opinion. My kids were more interested in colorful jelly desserts. I liked any dishes made from rice. For a family of 4, We spent only $50 for a lunch, tip included. It was quite affordable for a memorable meal.
