More dim sum: north, east of Seattle

In today’s Ticket cover-story, I do the dim sum dance at jook joints North (Bamboo Village, last discussed on the blog days before it opened) and East (Macky’s Dim Sum in Issaquah, introduced here early this year). So, has anybody besides Seattle Weekly’s Jason Sheehan gone to either since we first discussed? What do you think? And am I the only one who’s yet to make it to Zen Garden in Mill Creek for dim sum? (I hear it’s worth the trip. You?)

And has anybody seen the “Dim Sum Coming Soon” banner hanging over my neighborhood Chinese-stop, T&T Seafood Restaurant in Edmonds? I have, and I’m beside myself. Last I heard, my main man at T&T, Tony Mann, was in search of the right dim sum chef — who may be making dumplings as soon as November. Speaking of dumplings, the ETA on Bellevue’s Din Tai Fung, since so many of you keep asking, is early November. I promise to keep you posted on that one.

Amy Lee, co-owner of Bamboo Village (center, left) and Sonny and Macky Wong of Macky’s Dim Sum (holding their namesake specialty) had strong ties to the ID before heading North and East.
