If you missed the first Chinatown Happy Hour Food Walk last month, you have another chance to experience it on June 16.
To enjoy great food at low prices, start with Dim Sum King located at 617 South Jackson Street. At $4, you get a dim sum sample plate with five items, such as hum bow, sesame seed ball, meatball, and other combinations.
Dim sum means “to your heart’s delight,” with bits of everything. In America, dim sum has been expanded to lunches and even dinners, even though it started as a Cantonese-style lunch.
One of the most popular dim sum places in Chinatown/International District, Dim Sum King, offers over 40 items to choose from.
A tip for hungry souls, get there early. There were lines in the last food walk at Dim Sum King. In less than three hours, it sold over 100 sample plates.
After your meal, walk two blocks to Eastern Café at 510 Maynard Avenue South for their $2 beer.
The Happy Hour Food Walk features 31 establishments including 26 restaurants. It starts at 4 p.m. and ends at 7 p.m. on June 16. The walk is a monthly event in the International District.
