Before I left Boston, my friend took me to China Pearl for a final round of dim sum. I loved the atmosphere and the food was exquisite. The best part of dim sum is that you can have as much or as little of something as you like and you can see it before you order. What I remember as well as the food was the waitress becoming upset with my friend as she tried to speak Chinese with him. Although he looks Chinese, he doesn’t speak a word and the staff here seemed to think he ought to have known what they were saying! They took one look at me (not Asian) and handed me a fork!
