Empire Chinese Kitchen is Portland Maine’s first Dim Sum restaurant. It’s menu is smaller than typically found in larger cities, but makes up for variety by the quality and intensity of each dish.
Pork belly buns with spicy plum sauce and pickles. Were the perfect mix of puffy bun, richness, and crunch.
Shu Mai, dumplings featured a rich shrimp and pork filling encased in beautiful pasta wrapper.
That plus a large bowl of silken tofu, pork and mixed vegetables in a rich spicy sauce made an excellent meal.
Service was excellent, dishes arrived still steaming heavily and we were never bereft of fine beverages.
