Genesis : Dim Sum
901 22nd St W
Genesis is one of those places where I get super excited to visit whenever I'm in Saskatoon. They do some of my favourite childhood dim sum dishes so well, I actually find myself randomly craving for their food more often then I like (being they are an hour flight away!)
Below are some of my favourites:
If you're not allergic to shrimp, go right ahead with their Fried Shrimp Dumplings ($3.5o). I'm not sure what they got going on with their mayo base dipping sauce but it's slightly sweeter and smoother than other places I've ever had!
Steamed Shrimp Dumplings ($3.5o) - I love shrimp dumplings but to find ones with the perfect wrap is super hard, this place got it down with their flexible, translucent dumpling wrap.
Stuffed Eggplant ($3.5o) - One of my favourite dim sum dish is stuffed eggplant, theres something really satisfying with perfectly grilled/crisp veggies in my books ... usually the places I've been to who offers this dish, it comes out soggy, too oily and over battered - Genesis though ... they've got this dish done right. *Tip: If you want to retain the crisp, ask for the sauce on side and pour it on at your table.
Pork Pot Stickers ($5) - Again.. perfectly crisp!
Salt & Pepper Squid ($4) - Genesis and their 'lightly' battered fried anything = order it!
Shrimp Sui Mai ($3.5o)
Sizzling Ginger Beef
So to wrap this up, if you ever happen to find yourself in Saskatoon and really want some great dim sum, Genesis is the place. Although mind you I may be bias because they're the only dim sum place I've been to in Sask, however their consistency, quality and taste has been top notch! They are very much worth a visit!
