Ellicott City's Asian Court has moved - Dim Sum for Christmas

My go to Asian restaurant for Hong Kong Style Dim Sum, Asian Court, has just moved from its original digs in the Home Depot / Chatham Station Shopping Center just off Baltimore National Pike to Turf Valley Towne Square, 11105 Resort Road  in Ellicott City. 

A recent visit to the new digs on the weekend when dim sum is served from the carts from 11 am to 3 pm offered out too many temptations. Having dim sum with friends, both who have lived in China, is even more fun as metal steamers baskets stacked up upon each other as we delved into dim sum Nirvana. 

Servers roll the carts to your table, gladly showing off their dim sum choices. Yes to the Shu_Mai – meat dumplings, Fun Gor-steamed translucent dumplings with vegetables and meat filling, Har Ren—fried minced shrimp balls, Har Cheung-steamed rice noodles sheets filled with shrimp, Gai-Gao-steamed chicken buns….yes, yes, yes! Yes to the chicken feet, eggplant stuffed with ground shrimp, steamed baby clams – we wanted it all.   

Asian Court is apply named because there is much more than dim sum; foods from the Asian arena –Japan, Vietnam, China, Malaysia, Thailand. The menu list the chef’s specialties from Hong Kong that are true to their origins and not Americanized.  You can get your sushi or your pho on, Asian Court does it all – choices for everyone’s Asian culinary desires.
Asian Court will be open for Christmas Day, 10:30 am to 10 pm with their full menu available and of course Hong Kong Style Dim Sum from the carts from 10:30 am to 3 pm.  

The move is quite recent so the map on their website is not up-to-date, they are not vested in social media so no Twitter or Instagram. There is parking in front and in the back of the restaurant.  In warmer weather they do have a courtyard for al fresco dining.
