Tasty twists on classics at first-ever dim sum festival

Yum Cha! Dim Sum Festival dished out traditional and innovative takes on buns, dumplings and rolls at the Chinese Freemason Association in Chinatown on Sunday.

Fearing backlash from the recent food fest disaster that was Grilled Cheese Fest, the morning timeslot of the ticketed festival actually seemed undersold, meaning line-ups were nonexistent. By noon, most attendees had thoroughly gorged themselves on dishes from an impressive line-up of restaurants that included Canoe, GwaiLo, Babi & Co. Hot Bunzz, FeastTO, MeNu Foodtruck, La Brea and Linda.

If you didn't make this time, not to worry. Tickets for Yum Cha! 2, which is set to go down Sunday, May 4 at 36 Wagstaff Dr. (next door to Leftfield Brewery), go on sale today.

Check out the tasty treats in our gallery from the event.
