WESTERN LAKE CHINESE SEAFOOD RESTAURANT THE BEST DIM SUM BRUNCH IN VANCOUVER

Western Lake Chinese Seafood Restaurant located in South East Vancouver on Victoria Drive is a very popular weekend brunch Dim Sum spot. There is always a crowd waiting outside the restaurant even when the weather is terrible.

Western Lake calls themselves the 'Best Dim Sum' and many reviews seem to agree, so we gave this restaurant a shot.

Is Western Lake really the best Dim Sum in town?
