THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Joe's Dim Sum Palace Restaurant Review

: Joe’s has risen from the near-death of a horrid kitchen fire to dim sum once again, and we couldn’t be happier. Now we can head straight here whenever we’re craving a great hit of splendid Cantonese or Hong Kong-style cooking. It’s true that you can order all the regular stuff we’ve come to associate with Chinese restaurants---kung pao chicken, sweet and sour pork---but why would you when you can choose from a menu of house specialties like the tingly salt and pepper crab spiked with dried shrimp and scallions and the sparerib chow fun, its broad noodles smoky from a round in the wok. Dim sum, too, takes a star turn, from the simplest bao, a cloud-like dumpling that harbors a saucy chunk of barbecued pork, to our favorite, custard cream. The atmosphere’s not much to speak of and you have to bring your own beer, but you’ll be hard pressed to find better Chinese around these parts.
