When it comes to Dim Sum, Charlie Chan, like their namesake Jackie, kick ass. OK this is Cambridge not Hong Kong and options are limited, but these are really good. Translucent thin crescents with a glimmer of prawn shining through, fluffy pork buns, chicken feet if you fancy it – oh and they also do a great hot and sour soup.

Go at lunchtime where, it seems, the entire Chinese population of Cambridge gathers, either in garrulous family groups or in silent couples, to demolish the skyscrapers of bamboo steamers  unceremoniously dumped in front of them.
 Charlie Chan don't serve dim sums in the evening so go for lunch and for a ridiculously small amount of money feed your face.
Charlie Chan, 14 Regent Street, Cambridge.
