Ebisu: Dim sum
₯3780-5050
€Data
With its Francophile
name and decor, this
Ebisu hideaway has
all the trappings of
a French bistro, but
it's one of the best
places for dim sum
in the city. Incon-
gruous though this
must seem, once you
step through the
heavy wooden door,
there will be no
mistaking the deli-
cious aroma of au-
thentic Hong-Kong
style Chinese cui-
sine.

The Y2000 yum cha
(dim sum) set offers
excellent value - it
includes an assort-
ment of steamed and
fried dumplings; ebi
chiri, or shrimp in
a sweet and sour
chili sauce; congee
rice porridge; and
dessert. They do
standards very well
here: the shrimp-
filled ha gow dump-
lings are plump and
springy, while the
char siew bao roast
pork buns are both
savory and sticky-
sweet.

If your party num-
bers three or more,
however, consider
ordering a la carte
for a more varied
experience. For
those in the dim sum
know, the menu
presents a number of
difficult-to-find
treats. The scallop
and pea sprout dump-
lings taste like a
bite of spring. The
deep fried taro root
dumplings stuffed
with ground meat and
shiitake mushrooms
are crispy, soft,
smooth, and chunky
all at the same
time. The choi-fun -
loosely rolled rice
noodles filled with
shrimp, and sub-
merged in a mildly
sweet soy-based
sauce - have a deli-
cate, silky texture.
The kitchen makes
only ten plates per
day, so go early to
secure your order.

The non-smoking
upstairs dining
space is bright and
cheerful, with large
windows overlooking
the small park be-
side the restaurant,
making Le Parc a
lovely place to
spend a leisurely
weekend lunch.
(There's a separate
dining space for
smokers downstairs.)
