Daintiest dim sum—runner-up (2008)
So what are some of the outer-borough places I'd recommend for the best dim sum? Foremost is World Tong, which sounds like the clubhouse of a comic-book band of superheroes. Anomalously located near the N-track trench in New Utrecht, World Tong prides itself in unusual dim sum, in addition to the expected har gow, cha siu bao, and chicken feet. Passing by on sparkling carts, you'll find tree fungus wrapped in bean curd skin, bronze-skinned suckling pig strewn with shredded leeks, and, for dessert, mango pudding molded into a goldfish.
