Best Dim Sum in the 'Burbs

Macky's Dim Sum

Seattle has never been a city short on dim sum. But until recently, if you found yourself stranded on the Eastside and looking for some shu mai, dumplings, or maybe a plate of crispy prawns, you would've been largely out of luck. Fortunately, that's no longer the case, thanks to the opening of Macky's Dim Sum, a suburban Chinese operation brought to life by Sonny and Macky Wong, late of the International District's Vegetarian Bistro [closed?] and China Gate—a temple to dim sum and drunken karaoke for 20 years. They've brought all their best tricks (and one of their greatest cooks, Mr. Fook) to the 'burbs to do a cart-driven dim sum menu full of soup dumplings, shrimp balls, Chinese crepes, chicken feet, sesame balls, mango custards, sticky rice, and a dozen varieties of traditional dumplings, all day every day, while also serving a more standardized a la carte board full of Americanized Chinese offerings and house specialties like Peking duck, roasted duck in plum sauce, amazing Szechuan crispy beef, and seafood soup served in a hollowed pumpkin. —Jason Sheehan 317 N.W.
