Dim-sum is such a wonderful thing. It's like getting to taste a little bit of everything without the risk of being stuck with a dish you don't like. Lai-Lai's restaurant in Ann Arbor has one of the better dim-sum menus in town. My favorites are the shrimp-stuffed eggplant, which is quite deliciously light but satisfying, and the sesame balls, which always stop my sweet-tooth craving. This dim-sum menu has everything including the more traditional Chinese fare, such as chicken's feet and sticky rice. However, it is made to order rather than the traditional dim-sum way of a la carte. So, the next time you're going to enter the cavernous Lowe's or Home Depot on Carpenter, eat some hearty dim-sum at Lai-Lai's. Oh, just so you know, the owners and waitstaff are also quite nice, albeit soft spoken.
