Ok. I live in the Bay Area. San Francisco is the single large Chinatown outside of Asia. And Oakland's Chinatown (which begins less than 5 blocks from my house) is the fourth largest.
So I need someone to explain to me my ridiculous fear of dim sum. Don't get me wrong. I love the stuff. I am just terribly intimidated by it, and can't bring myself to explore it without a guide. My poor husband still hasn't tried it because yours truly still doesn't know where to start.
Is there a "Dim Sum for Dummies" book I should know about???
