My mission to find all the various Dim Sum locations in the Greater Montreal Area continue recently and I was more than happy to take part in it. Tong Sing is the little known Dim Sum place in the original Chinatown that seems to have taken a back seat to the 3 juggernauts. During my visit, I was hoping to see if the sleeper choice would surprise or explain why it was tucked away in a corner of Chinatown.
This is a revisited post for Ruby Rouge. Click HERE to see the original post.

For anyone of Chinese descent, Dim Sum is a mandatory practice that is part of living the traditional life. What used to be exclusively a Chinese activity had now become one that is now shared with just about anyone who likes to eat. I had an unfortunate Dim Sum drought that lasted years. It wasn’t until 2 years ago that the dry spell was broken with a visit to Ruby Rouge. Now, 2 years and 3 other places later, I have returned to Ruby Rouge to give it the due it so richly deserves.

When people think of Chinese food in Montreal, one’s mind starts to think of Chinatown. In recent years, places outside that small sector have popped up in various locations around the Greater Montreal region. While Tong Por might not be one of those recent places, it’s one of those names that are quickly mentioned when one thinks of Dim Sum in this city. It’s northern location allows those who can’t travel to the central city to get their fix.
