    Unsure what "dim sum" actually is? Consider it in the Chinese version of "tapas". Loosely translated, it means to touch the heart. With so many options, it'll fill your stomach 1st!

    Best parking lot is at 8th & Race Sts. For an award-winning yet cheap meal, head to Sang Kee Duck House right across the street at 9th & Vine Sts.
