Stack Dim Sum Edinburgh

For anyone who wishes to actually eat real Chinese dim sum, this little unpretentious restaurant off Leith Walk in Dalmenny St is the place to go. Stack is a family kind of place and from the outside almost run down. Inside is not the plush rooms associated with Chinese restaurants but a plain simple room that holds about 8 tables. All of them full of local Chinese eating dim sum very quietly and with great enjoyment. Its a serious eating place.

The quality of the dim sum served is extraordinary and one is immediately aware that this is not the taste one gets in flashier uptown "foreign" oriented Chinese restaurants.

Outstanding for me was the pork ribs in black bean and the amazing rice with pork and pickled vegetables, but all the offerings were at the top of their class. Its all about taste and this place has that. My sons liked the duck spring rolls and we all thought their sui mai was the best we had ever had. But these are highlights in a feast of good.
