A & J Restaurant Restaurant Review

: One of the very few northern-style dim sum restaurants in the area, A & J offers an extensive menu. If you know only Cantonese dim sum, some of the dishes may give you pause: beef tendon with garlic sauce, beef tripe soup, and bean curd with thousand-year-old egg are some of the less familiar offerings. Once seated, linger over such dishes as scallion pancakes and spicy won tons with hot sauce. It's non-stop dim sum, so don't expect General Tso's chicken.
