Dim Sum at Bo Ling's

What is Dim Sum?
The literal translation of Dim Sum is the point of the heart. It is the most popular Cantonese tradition of gathering with family and friends to eat together. Traditional dishes, tea and personal connections are the heart of Dim Sum and Bo Ling¡¯s has offered this unique opportunity since 1987. Whether experiencing Dim Sum for the very first time, reliving memories of Hong Kong, or remembering home, Dim Sum creates a cultural and culinary interaction. It has even drawn customers in from states as far as Arkansas and Nebraska. Every detail of Dim Sum, including the time that it is served, reflects this special tradition.

How Dim Sum Works
There are a variety of push carts that make rounds through the dining room. A server will take your order for tea or beverages and the carts will pass by your table. The Dim Sum carts focus on nine essential categories: Funn Rolls, Noodles, Cold Appetizers, Chef Vegetable Plates, Porridge and Soft Tofu, Roast Duck/Roast Pork and Sticky Rice, Deep Fry and Pan Fry items, Dessert and the Steam cart. The Chef Special Plates are brought around on hand held trays including items like Gai Lan (Chinese Broccoli), Crispy Shrimp and Honey BBQ Ribs. There is also a table set up in the dining room featuring Sichuan Won Tons and Pan-fried Funn Rolls, as well as Soy Milk. There are Bubble teas available in both the creamy and Golden tea based styles. You simply select the items you like! The staff mark the number of items by plate size on your Dim Sum ticket. Regular and Traditional Bo Ling¡¯s menu items are always available upon request!
