Review: Kam Wai Dim Sum

by gigi on September 29, 2010

Jenkins and I were doing some grocery shopping in Chinatown one day when we decided to stick around for some lunch as well. We wandered past Kam Wai Dim Sum on Pender Street when I remembered Sherman doing a review about it fairly recently. I’m always game for dim sum and Jenkins did not need […]
