Beijing Opera

Dim Sum is easily one of my favorite foods, the soft, melting slightly sticky outer layer and the salty soy is pure addiction so it made me happy to hear of Beijing Opera, a new Dim Sum bar right on my doorstep.

An intimate interior with two communal tables and some window seats, sit where you can and mingle with the locals, they don't take bookings. 

The menu has pan fried Potstickers, dim sum which has been crisp fried one one side, Bao which are the steam buns and steamed dim sum with assorted fillings for all as well as a specials menu which comprised of a dumpling soup and a rice dish this evening.

My brother and I tried a few of each, all of them beautifully made, it is delivered as they are ready in a constant flow.

The owner was friendly and attentive, make sure you get some of her "secret sauce" which was A really delicious addition to our feast. The prices are between R40 and R60 for 4 dim sum and R15 for a steam bun, just remember to bring cash or use Snapscan as there is no credit facility yet but they have recently received their alcohol licence.

I will definitely be there again soon!
