East Contra Costa County dumpling fanatics had a good time when Dumpling Hours opened a brand new outpost of the wildly-popular Walnut Creek eating place in Brentwood previous this summer season.
Now, a family-owned dim sum eating place with roots in Guangdong, China, has debuted about two miles away. Dim Sum Basket, situated at 3120 Balfour Highway, Suite C, makes a speciality of fried, baked and steamed dumplings, an array of buns, baked egg tarts and Hong Kong-style milk teas. The eating place is in its cushy opening, with hours from 10 a.m. to five p.m. Tuesday-Friday, 9 a.m. to five p.m. Saturday and 9 a.m. to a few p.m. Sunday.
Cousins and co-owners John Chen and Max Chan are not any strangers to the eating place industry. Chen runs a thriving catering industry in San Francisco. Sooner than Dim Sum Basket, Chan used to be the co-owner of Acai R in San Francisco. All over the pandemic, they witnessed an exodus from San Francisco to East Bay suburbs, like Brentwood, and made up our minds to fill the dim sum void.
“It used to be an concept to resurrect our kin industry, a dim sum eating place and bakery from China many many years in the past, owned by way of Max’s father and my father, who’re brothers,” Chen says.
The menu gives beneficiant parts at inexpensive costs. Maximum dim sum is set $2, together with the fried shrimp balls, baked beef buns and steamed pot stickers. Onerous-to-find fried taro puffs are $1.75, and the lotus leaf-wrapped sticky rice full of beef, Chinese language sausage and egg, is $4.
Don’t pass over the baked egg tarts. We listen they rival the most efficient in San Francisco’s Chinatown. Main points: https://dimsumbasket.sq..website
