Lei Garden

This Hong Kong chain’s Beijing outpost is the capital’s reigning queen of dim sum. It’s an upmarket dim sum experience, with excellent service and a fairly serene dining room, with prices to match. Your dining companions will be young couples taking snaps of their dim sum spreads and boisterous families with chopsticks at the ready. Atop white tablecloths sit steamers full of pillowy steamed pork buns, shrimp dumplings, and glutinous rice wrapped in a lotus leaf. Round out the meal with crispy suckling pig, pan-fried turnip cake—deliciously crispy on the outside and chewy within—and something green to balance it all out. If you fancy something sweet to end the meal, go for the egg tarts, and order them along with everything else.
