#95 Casa Imperial

Casa Imperial

The best dim sum in Toronto (at a decent price) is at Warden and Steeles in an over-the-top Victorian mansion crowded with ornate Victoriana. There are oodles of huge gilt framed mirrors and oil paintings of the English countryside, mammoth gilt crystal chandeliers and silver damask tablecloths. All a visual reminder of the lengthy British colonization of Hong Kong. Thank goodness the Chinese didn’t eat British food. The Casa serves splendid dim sum every day, not from carts but to order. We love the big fat boiled shrimp wonton with chili oil, the pan fried green onion pancake, pea green and mushrooms steamed in rice wrapper, sticky rice with chicken and conpoy in lotus leaf, and chewy bean curd wrapper with chicken and shrimp.
