Five popular dishes from Lulu’s Seafood and Dimsum are displayed on one of their many tables in the restaurant. The restaurant employees worked very hard to produce such high quality, delicious food. “We have a more traditional menu with Dim Sum, Cantonese style, and Chinese style food,” restaurant co-founder Jerry Li said. “All the food is special to me, and our most unique aspect of the restaurant is Dim Sum.”

We ate at Lulu’s Seafood and Dimsum and reviewed three of their most popular dishes including the walnut shrimp, chicken fried rice, and soup dumplings. The service upon arrival was exceptional, foreshadowing the experience that would be indulging in their delicious cuisine. 

The walnut shrimp (middle) was exceptionally crunchy, practically melting in your mouth. Despite the shrimp being beautifully breaded and cooked, in the end, they were no match for the sweet honey sauce that covered them. The creamy texture and beautiful flavor made the sauce the ultimate pairing to the slightly salty, somewhat fishy-flavored shrimp. The steamed bed of broccoli, while frequently overlooked, was nonetheless essential to the dish. The neutral flavor made the broccoli the perfect bite for in-between pieces of shrimp, acting almost as a palate cleanser. Overall, the dish was delicious and will be one of my new go-to orders.  

Chicken fried rice (bottom right) is a staple dish on almost every Chinese restaurant’s menu, and for good reason. It’s consistently delicious and is the perfect pairing for almost any entree. The fried rice at Lulu’s is no exception to these standards. The perfectly seasoned rice and immaculately cooked chicken has earned it. 

Every dish I ate was undeniably delicious, spectacular perhaps, yet they still struggle to even compare to the experience that is indulging in a Lulu’s homemade soup dumpling (top left). The most basic component of the soup dumpling is the wrapper, however it didn’t fail to impress me. Its consistency made it the perfect beginning to the dumpling. With one bite, the steamed soup pools out into your mouth for a flavorful mix of homemade pork and broth.
