A few weeks ago we went to Unforgettable on Calgary Trail to meet up with a friend for Sunday evening Dim sum.

The only other place I've been in Edmonton for Dim sum is the New Tan Tan downtown, but I prefer Unforgettable for a couple of reasons - first of all, it's in our neighborhood and we can get there via walking if it's a nice enough day. I also prefer their food and selections, and the staff is always really helpful and patient when it comes to explaining dishes, and they are always checking the teapot to see if you need more hot water. And finally, Unforgettable always has interesting specials to offer - this time it was steamed oysters with black bean and garlic sauce, while it was black chicken last time we were there.

They only do baked buns (BBQ pork and coconut) on the weekends, although the steamed ones are really great too. By the time we got there on Sunday around 6:30PM, they had sold out, so keep that in mind if it is one of your Dim sum musts. Also, the space is pretty small, so if you are heading over with a group, be sure to call ahead.
