Dim Sum could possibly be the quintessential family-friendly weekend brunch destination. Where else can you go and dine on small savory dishes that roll tableside (no waiting for food to arrive), share with a large party (10-top with plenty of room for several kids), not worry about table manners (most dishes are finger food), and leave stuffed without emptying your wallet? Hei La Moon is just the place to experience traditional dim sum, and arguably one of the top dim sum houses in Boston.
Great. You will find many young diners at this kid-friendly brunch spot. Staff will be happy to bring you a high chair and plastic forks.
Hei La Moon offers Dim Sum on the weekend and a regular lunch and dinner menu. For Dim Sum, Hei La Moon parades the traditional dishes on steam carts. Diners can point to what they want and the staff with track each dish with a stamp on your bill. Dishes range from $3-7, depending on the category (steamed, bigger plates, fried, specials, etc.).
- Shrimp Hargow
- Pork Shiu Mai
- Chau Sui Bao (BBQ pork buns, steamed or baked)
- Baked Egg Custard Tart
- Sticky Rice in Lotus Leaf
Hei La Moon does not have a kids menu. But like Spanish tapas and small plates, dim sum is great for kids. Chau Sui Bao and Sticky Rice are always a winner with kids. Dim sum is a perfect chance for them to explore lots of different dishes.
