MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

It may be on the second floor of the Chinatown Mall, but a sleek carved wood and glass door marks the entrance to Cai, indicating that there is something special within. And indeed there is, as the place not only gleams but is packed with Chinese expats, families, and locals. They're all here for such spot-on Cantonese classics as barbecue pork, rice noodles, and congee. There’s not a single cart in sight either, as dim sum is ferried to and fro by adept servers. Check off the box for such delicious nibbles as seafood dumplings in a flavorful broth; delicate xiao long bao with crab; or congee enriched by mushrooms. Set aside your table manners for a plate of their deliciously messy chicken feet. Come during dinner for page-after-page of elegant entrées.
